A Day at a Massive 500-Acre Sculpture Park in Upstate NY

Located amidst a serene patch of land, Storm King gives a breath of fresh air and an opportunity to ponder for every urban dweller swirled in the daily difficulties of city living. With 500 acres of park land and dozens of artists exhibiting, the place inspires, amuses and bewilders. I ventured out for a day to experience Storm King firsthand.

One of my favorite architectural elements of Storm King is the low-profile edge by the sidewalk, allowing the roads to merge into the scenery
