“It’s a waste of money, but it’s fabulous,” said student Shakana Jayson. “It brings happiness when you look at it.”

Well then, it wasn’t really a waste of money then, was it ;-)

    COOL !
    I just hope some N.Y. moron doesn’t knock it over like dominoes.

    !!!! Ha! That would be terrible! … but pretty awsome, nonetheless!

    I went to the city to see the gates.. I must say that I am not as thrilled as some others may be. I understand the artistic statement and its pretty the first 5 minutes and the birds eye pictures are also pretty, but nearly 20 million dollars?! With the state our world is in right now.. just think about how much a 32nd of that money could have helped if it were donated to the tsunami relief. I wish it didn’t take a ton of big orange flags to bring said happiness to people even if it is NYC in the middle of winter.
