Looking for public art? The Parks Department has a map for that

Howard Halle

It’s hard to walk anywhere around the Five Boroughs without bumping into a public artwork, whether its a permanent monument or a temporary art installation. There’s hundreds of them out there, making New York City a veritable museum of outdoor art. But unlike going to the Met, there’s no map or floor plan to tell you where everything is—until now. This week, the NYC Parks Department added an interactive map to its site that plots the location of every plaque, statue, memorial and temporary public art project on view. Just click on a pin (green for permanent object; white for temporary piece) and a box pops up with a thumbnail photo and description. There’s also a search function where you can enter your zip or address to find the nearest ones to you. Check it out here.
