Check Out the Glowy “MoonGARDEN” at 85 Broad Street

Be sure to carve out some time for nighttime walks around the neighborhood — Lower Manhattan’s newest piece of public art, “moonGARDEN,” is on display at 85 Broad right now, and it’s absolutely worth a visit.

Presented by the Downtown Alliance,  “moonGARDEN” consists of three oversized, multicolored orbs that house shadowy silhouettes of urban park life. Visitors can witness those silhouettes coming to life after dark, when the orbs are lit up, making for a unique and immersive experience.

This installation marks the sixth public art activation that the Downtown Alliance has brought to Lower Manhattan’s public plazas over the past three years. Past installations have included “Prismatica,” “Oscillation,” “Ziggy,” “C/C” and “Talking Heads.” 

You can see “moonGARDEN” on display through June 8.
