Central Park awash in saffron as `The Gates' open wide
They're just wild about saffron in New York. The biggest art project in the city's history is drawing visitors to Central Park, where 75-hundred gates along 23 miles of footpaths are draped in saffron-colored fabric banners.
The artists bill the project known as "The Gates" as "a visual golden river." The creation of Christo and Jeanne-Claudestretches along 23 miles of footpaths. One woman who came from Switzerland just to see the exhibit calls it "poetry in motion."
