A Skyscraper with a Sense of Humor



If you've ever flown over Manhattan, you may have observed something rather unusual. On top of 77 Water Street in New York's financial district is a bright green landing strip and a WWI era aircraft. The Sopwith Camel plane is an art installation created in 1969 by Rudolph de Harak and William Tarr. It's only purpose is to amuse the workers in nearby skyscrapers.
