Meadow Spotted Runing Amok in NYC: Film @ 11

I'm a big fan of the Onion, so loved the semi-hyperbolic headlines reporting this, okay, I'll say it, 'cute' installation NYC showing a snippet of meadow captured for the viewing: "Coupling urban restoration and indigenous plants, Julie Farris and Sarah Wayland-Smith, both landscape designers, were commissioned by the Public Art Fund to design and construct ‘A Clearing in the Streets,’ a 15-foot wide, plywood structure containing the beginnings of a meadow. The temporary installation, meant to invite passers-by to appreciate and watch the “re-insertion” of nature back into the city, offers a glimpse into NYC’s native landscape."

Oh, false alarm... the meadow has been pounded into submission by New Yorkers stampeding to actual manufactured nature atop the High Line. Crisis averted. Nothing to see here. Move along...
