The Greatest City on Earth has come to the greatest neighborhood on earth!

The new public art installation, The Greatest City on Earth, was unveiled this weekend on Nassau Street between John and Fulton streets by artist Linda Zacks. It’s part of Re:Construction, a public art program produced by the Downtown Alliance through a grant supplied by the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation.

“As Lower Manhattan continues to grow, construction can be tough on small businesses and confusing for pedestrians. While we look forward to all the great improvements happening downtown, this latest Re:Construction installation is a creative and resourceful way to support small businesses, direct visitors, residents and local workers, and beautify Lower Manhattan all at the same time,” said Elizabeth H. Berger, President of the Alliance for Downtown New York.

So ignore this dreary, winter weather and step outside to see the newest, vibrant installation. You can learn more about the Re:Con program – and all of the other existing installations in Lower Manhattan – by clicking here.
