Happy 13th Anniversary to "The Gates"

February 19, 2018 --

Hard to believe it is thirteen years since Christo and Jeanne-Claude brought "The Gates" to Central Park, coinciding, LPR believes, with the onset of the digital camera age. LPR recalls Central Park roads and paths teemed with thousands of people taking images of "The Gates" with their new digital cameras. For the record, the images here presented were captured on film.

Here is the LPR posting marking the end of this remarkable cultural event. From mid-February to mid-March.
