It was fun, not tricky, and I learned stuff.

I wasn't expecting a 100% approval rating!

But I'm glad most people kept most of their points.
And when it's done I'll talk some more about what triggered the puzzle.

And why the particular title, please.

As an applephile who grew up an hour from NYC, I loved the factoids.

I enjoyed it too, and am also curious about the title.

OK, it's time to start ranting. I'm a New Yorker. I loved the Cows. I loved the Gates. I do NOT love the idea that this dude has his statue all over town - and I don't mean Barry!

Check out Event Horizon on the internet now Ken. I realize you dont do it during the game but you might enjoy the results.

Just to clarify: Anthony Gormley is a British sculptor who has an exhibition all round Madison Square Park -- the original site of M S Gardens by the way.

This is 5th Avenue and 26th street and one block from my aprtment in NY. The buildings quoted all have life-size nude scupltures of himself...yes absolutely nude and life-size in all respects. Each sculptor are on top of the building, bar a few scattered round the park -- each the subject of many Japanese/tourist photos.

All the facts about the buildings come from a leaflet published that discussed the exhibition and the buildings. My favorite is that one of the buildings was where Roosevelt watched Lincoln's funeral cortege. And who (certainly not me!) knew that before the Statue of Liberty was put in the water it sat in MS Park.

Me neither. The problem was, I guessed torso rather than torch.

As for event horizons, all I know is black holes

So what does "Event Horizon" have to do with a bunch of naked statues?

I believe "Event Horizon" is the name of Antony Gormley's exhibition. I'm assuming the name comes because the works are spread out, more or less, as far as the eye can see.

Unlike real event horizons where things are packed in away from where the eye will ever see!
