Leftover High Line Art 'Lost'

New, 2 comments

NYC the Blog wonders whatever happened to the metal sculptures left in the Chelsea Market tunnel back when the High Line was still abandoned and graffiti-covered. Some might not like Friends of the High LIne's response: "The sculptures that were attached to the High Line in the Chelsea Market tunnel have since been lost. They were stored for a time at 820 Washington Street, at the Southern terminus of the High Line, but the building they were being stored in has since been demolished, presumably along with the sculptures. We were never able to find out the name of the artist, so they were never contacted." 820 Washington was the meatpacking plant that got razed for the new Whitney Museum. So was the stuff really destroyed, or should we check Robert Hammond's guest house? [NYC the Blog]
