Dancing Giants

And, no, I'm not speaking of the New York Giants football team taking a break from their training camp at the SUNY Albany campus to hit a local disco!

This Victorian couple, like the Ladies of Liberty Park, is yet another part of the Sculpture In The Streets exhibit. But, unlike those two women frozen in place on a bench off of Hudson Avenue or the blue-suited man asleep under a newspaper across the street from City Hall, these two are not life-sized. This pair towers above passersby and traffic, easily over ten feet tall or more.

With very modern 677 Broadway and the Department of Environmental Conservation looming behind them, the romantic pair waltzes at Clinton Avenue between North Pearl Street and Broadway.
