Central Park, One Big Shinto Shrine

Blog TokyoNYC goes Drudge on the Gates, wondering, "CENTRAL PARK ART FRAUD?"

"There have been dozens of news stories promoting (geez, they have good publicists) a new work at Central Park featuring numerous orange gates...But I have to sound the alarm: this isn't original 'in any way!' It's clearly a very unadorned replica of the very well-known Japanese gates known as 'torii.'"Well, they don't look like exact replicas to us, but it's been more than a day since we fed the Gates PR machine, and we were starting to itch.
