From the website I found when searching for info on this year’s Tartan Day parade in NYC. The parade will be held on Saturday, 5 April, 2014 along Sixth Ave, beginning at 2 pm.
When I was in Edinburgh this past January and trying to figure out the best way to reach Glasgow Airport, I had hopes that my journey would take me within sight of at least one of Andy Scott’s monumental outdoor sculptures. His most recent work, The Kelpies, erected alongside a canal near Falkirk in Scotland, was the one I most hoped to see (see photo below). No such luck, but here we are just a couple of months later and ten foot high scale models of Scott’s two gigantic (100 feet tall) metal horses will be installed in Bryant Park for a month! I was already planning to a trip to the Big Apple; Bryant Park is only a couple of blocks from my arrival point at Grand Central Terminal, so I’m sure to see this version at least once. Yahoo! Probably won’t satisfy my craving to see the real deal, but it’ll have to do for now.
