New York Travel Guide: The Earth Room
So I've heard that a few of you guys are planning trips to New York this summer. Well I have a recommendation for you. The Earth Room is a 140-ton "interior earth sculpture" created in 1977 by artist Walter De Maria. What's an interior earth sculpture, you ask? In this case it's an enormous room filled with dirt.
Now before you object, here are four reasons you might consider giving it a look:
1. It's really weird and wonderful in person.
2. It's worth over a million dollars. (If you can figure out a way to get it to your house.)
3. It's free to visit.
4. It's worm-free (for now, hint-hint).
Oh yeah, and while you're here you might want to drop by THE COOLEST PARK IN THE UNIVERSE.
