We wrote about Robert Smithson’s floating island  about a month ago, but I just want to remind interested New Yorkers that the floating island has set sail today. The displaced chunk of Central Park will circumnavigate Manhattan everyday until September 25th, and will be viewable from various points on the Hudson and the East River from 8AM – 8PM.
I encourage all New Yorkers to try to pop out to the waterfront sometime this week to witness Smithson’s amazing posthumous installation.
Here is a map of the places and times where you can view the floating island:
