MORNING BULLETIN: FDNY SEXUAL HAZING LAWSUIT, MORNINGSIDE HEIGHTS REAL ESTATE ANXIETIES

The Central Park Conservancy hosts this annual Valentine’s Day event at the Naumburg Bandshell to celebrate the love for the central park’s sculptures. This year they have a live ice carving by Okamoto Studio, exhibits on statue restoration in Central Park, food, and live DJs at night.

Okamoto Studios use more than 6,000 pounds of ice to replicate an iconic park statue. The father-son Takeo and Shintaro Okamoto are the core of this group that was founded in 2003. While Takeo passed away in 2012, Shintaro continues to work with ice, and was assisted by Thomas Brown. They are replicating parts of the Alice in Wonderland statue.
