The Gates NYC 2005

Six years ago today (Valentine's weekend), my husband and I took a Babymoon trip to New York City before our daughter was due to be born in May.

We were fortunate to be there the opening day of The Gates in Central Park, February 12, 2005. The Gates was a project by Christo and Jeanne-Claude. Christo & Jeanne-Claude have inspired the world with their art, which has been displayed in four continents and seen by millions. The built a reputation around the world for massive temporary art projects like wrapping Berlin's Reichstag and Paris' Pont Neuf in fabric.

The Gates were free-hanging, saffron-colored fabric panels that were suspended from gates throughout the footpaths of Central Park.

The Gates were 7500 gates, 16 feet high and lined 23 miles of footpathes in the park. It was an amazing site and I am so glad we were able to be there to experience it.

Thanks for stopping by.
