Highline - Part 2 - Rainbow City and more ;)

Quite the unusual sight for Manhattan, right!?! Rainbow City is in an open lot {another rarity for New York!} at the new top of Highline Park! (30th Street and 10th Ave.) 

Here's the description of Rainbow City from the official website: "FriendsWithYou and AOL are excited to announce the opening of the forty piece environmental installation “Rainbow City” in New York City, in celebration of Section 2 of the High Line. Originally commissioned by Luminato Festival of the Arts in Toronto and showcased in association with AOL and PAPER Magazine during Art Basel Miami 2010, FriendsWithYou presents a vibrant collection of mutable, air-filled sculptures. Inaugurating in the art district of Chelsea during the month of June, this will be FWY’s first large-scale installation in New York City. This happy city is made up of intensely colored balloon pieces, encouraging visitors to be active and explore the giant 16,000 square foot playground. Built for adults and children alike, the installation allows for interaction with each art object, making the experience unforgettable."

WoW! I love the fun and funky things you see in the city! 
What's cool as well about this lot is array of food trucks! Unfortunately, it started raining right as we got there so they closed up - but I'm hoping to make it back to check this out!
