Tom Otterness' characters made of bronze have been described as "comical, cunning, cartoonish and adorable". His bronze sculptures are located throughout the City in Times Square (on West 42nd between 7th & 8th in front of the AMC movie theater), along the 8th Avenue subway station of the L & ACE trains, and also in Battery Park City.
I went to a guided tour on Saturday, May 8th at 2 pm with the Battery Park City Parks Conservancy, which described the public exhibition of 'The Real World', installed in 1992, of some of Tom's cartoony characters.
You really had to look around. They were everywhere!
