I know a couple of people going down to New York specifically to see The Gates. Not Bill Gates. The 7,500 saffron-colored (read: orange) 16-foot tall gates draped with fabric that have been installed throughout Central Park, an art project by Christo, an artist known for wrapping things in fabric. The New York Times has a whole feature on the gates, in case you want to read / see / experience. They actually look kind of cool.

Five more projects for Christo:

1. Sprinkling fourteen tons of glitter on Stonehenge.
2. Covering the Egyptian Pyramids with a giant purple hat.
3. Obscuring Mount Rushmore with eighty-five thousand pounds of cucumber peels.
4. Covering Mount Everest in aluminum foil.
5. Wrapping a birthday present for his wife in "Happy Birthday" wrapping paper.
