The Mirror Labyrinth NY is composed of vertical mirrored boards arranged in a swirl liked path which evokes a feeling of whimsical fantasy all while serving as a pedestal or fond imitation of our New York Skyline.

Modified Social Benches, a collection of sixteen vibrant red and playful benches can be found throughout the entirety of the park. We managed to shoot with several of them by following along with the scavenger hunt trail map provided by the Public Art Fund site. You can join in on the fun yourself by planning a scavenger excursion with friends and family. Find the map Here.
