PHOTO GALLERY: PEOPLE MEET CHRIS COLUMBUS 60 FEET IN THE AIR, MAKE THEMSELVES COMFORTABLE

The new exhibit in Columbus Circle of “Columbus’ Living Room” by Japanese artist Tatzu Nishi allows people to climb to the top of a 60-foot column and enter a room built around the 120-year-old statue of Christopher Columbus. There are cushy sofas, and magazines and newspapers on the tables, inviting people to kick back and relax. Even the wallpaper in the room has some funny touches, as you can see below. The whole scene makes for some amusing and engaging images.

Here are a few of the photos we’ve received from the first few days of the exhibition. If you go and snap some photos you like, send us some and we’ll add them to the gallery! Here’s more on the exhibit and how to get tickets, which are free. “Actually the idea is fun, but be prepared to stand around and wait because the limit the number of people who can get in at the same time,” reader Ivan Farkas told us.
