“The Greatest City on Earth” by Linda Zacks
The Alliance for Downtown New York announced the latest Re:Construction installation, The Greatest City on Earth, located at Nassau between John and Fulton Streets by artist Linda Zacks.
“As Lower Manhattan continues to grow, construction can be tough on small businesses and confusing for pedestrians. While we look forward to all the great improvements happening downtown, this latest Re:Construction installation is a creative and resourceful way to support small businesses, direct visitors, residents and local workers and beautify Lower Manhattan all at the same time,” said Elizabeth H. Berger, president of the Alliance for Downtown New York.
The Greatest City on Earth is an ongoing series of skylines by artist, Linda Zacks. Linda’s art reflects her passion for the city of New York; she uses a combination of imagery and materials to capture the vitality of the urban, modern experience “that turns a jackhammer into a musical instrument.” Zacks’ powerful body of work captures the life and emotion in a city skyline evoking the frenetic and visceral to the quiet and serene moments that mark the experience of daily life in The Greatest City on Earth.
