i signed up to help install the gates project this weekend in central park. i’m having a wonderful time, and everyone seems to be enjoying it (if not for being a little sore from the lifting and a lot tired from the having to be at the park at 7am). i even was quoted by the ap (down at the bottom). all in all, for someone who spends as much time as i do it front of the computer, this sure is a lot of physical labor. outdoors? picking up heavy things?
here are a few sites where you can view the progress of the project: wolfgang volz (official project photographer) and nycgates, or just walk on over to central park and see it with your own eyes (if you happen to be in nyc).
