Perfect Viewing Location for The Gates

On this snowy, overcast day, I just happened to find the perfect location for viewing The Gates: Mount Sinai Hospital.

The upside: located at 99th St. and Fifth Avenue, across the street from Central Park, the second-story windows of the labor and delivery floor are just high enough off the ground to give an impressive view of The Gates as it sweeps around the North Meadow. A quick walk across the street puts you in the middle of a nice section of the piece (photo at right).

The downside: the price for a day-long view here is twenty-one years of worry and the cost of a college education.

No posting for the rest of the week as I get acquainted with the six pound, thirteen ounce ticket that got me in the door there late last night.
