I was in the city today with my good friend Maddy and we wandered into Madison Square Park. As we walked in, I saw a statue of a naked man. I really didn’t think much of it, it’s art. But then, Maddy pointed them out to me and here’s what I saw:
There are 27 of these in all on top of buildings throughout the Flatiron district of Manhattan. These are the ones that I happened to see. On the day of the installation, people thought that these statues were real and that they were people about to jump. The amount of 911 calls increased and took manpower away from real emergencies.
I’m honestly not sure what I think of it and I can understand why others thought they were real people. Scary if you ask me.
