Golden Dancers

I took these pictures when I first got my camera (almost a year ago!), while on a walk downtown. These golden dancers on the side of a building caught my eye and I had so many questions. Who made them? What are they made of? How did they attach them to the side of a building? And why? Oddly enough, I never looked up the answers to any of these questions until right this very moment, while writing this post! According to Curbed, these statues are by artist Bruce Williams, and they are attached to the side of 24 Bond, a landmarked building in the Noho neighborhood (Noho = North of Houston Street). The artist lives in the building and some of the sculptures have been there since 1997

Pretty cool, huh? You never know what you’ll come across in this city! And another reason why I’m happy that I took up photography. If I hadn’t been glancing around looking for cool buildings and details to photograph, I’m sure I would have walked right by without noticing these dancers.
