Madison Square Park's latest art installation, Red, Yellow and Blue by Orly Genger, transforms the green space with a series of colorful wavy walls made up of painted, hand-knotted nautical rope—a whopping 1.4 million feet of it, which comes to 20 times the length of Manhattan—it weighs 100,000 pounds! The primary-colored walls dissect the park into spaces both hidden and visible, making it the ideal spot for a game of hide-and-seek, or just a great adventure with a camera in hand. Click through our slide show of images we took over the weekend to check the new installation out, then make plans for you and your family to see it for yourselves.

Red, Yellow and Blue will be on view at Madison Square Park through Sept 8.
