  • Don't expect a lot coming here but it is certainly something quirky that you can be sure not everyone you know who has visited New York has seen. It is what it says on the tin, no pictures allowed. Not open every day so check in advance. Basically you buzz a door at the address for the Earth room and someone let's you in. You climb a flight is stairs and it's there. The area surrounding is nice, so on a warm day go down and check out the surrounding boutiques.
  • The Earth Room is an interesting installation by the artist Walter De Maria. It is essentially a room filled with raked soil. Photography is prohibited. Its interesting how this piece of art can reveal unique perspectives of the viewer. For example, I found it unsettling that 'earth' was trapped inside the confines of a room but a friend found the sight of raked soil comforting!
