BY LEE MANSFIELD New York City’s most famous landmarks are being retrofitted with flower wall decor to keep them fresh for the holidays.
A new “holiday” version of the famed bathhouse at Pier 57 in New York has been set up on a patio near the iconic Grand Central Terminal in Times Square, a popular spot for people to relax in mid-December.
The new, larger bathroom, which is equipped with shower and sink, has been designed by artist, artist-turned-artist Daniel Schafer, who specializes in custom bath decor.
The bathroom is filled with an assortment of floral wall decorations, including a red rose with a red flower motif and a lavender-pink, white-and-green, and blue-and white floral wall decoration, according to a photo posted to the Wall Street Journal’s Facebook page.
It’s the third such design in the city’s history, and the second in Times Street, which has a history of attracting artists, said Eric Stieglitz, the citywide public works director.
The city has also commissioned a “flower wall” version for the city park, a public space that is not covered with any decorations and is open year-round. “
It is a unique piece of art and I think it will be a really fun part of the festivities for the holiday season.”
