camminando | NYC, Public Art on the Hudson Waterfront

One of my favorite routine walking itinerary in NYC is the Hudson Waterfront, from the seventies to Chelsea. The route offers comfortable walking, as completely separated from car traffic, nature sounds quite unlikely in such a urban environment —and view of the setting sun, of course. This summer this walking itinerary also offers public art, which I don't find particularly exciting, as it does not relate specifically to such a special site.

Nevertheless, public art is always inspiring and one of the greatest encounters in public places.
