Somewhere out there is New York City

It’s just well hidden under a flurry of snow.Today I went off piste across Central Park to visit the Catherdral Church of Saint John the Divine on the Upper West Side.The catherdral has an installation by Chienese artist Xu Bing.  The project, called Phoenix (2008-2010), is made up of two birds made from the detritus of China’s construction industry.  Together they weigh 12 tons and are 190 feet long.
