Sooooo disappointed when I heard the Lukoil gas station in West Chelsea was closing for yet another luxury condo….but delighted to see that the developer decided to turn the site into a temporary public art program during the interim. There’s been mention the developers hope to incorporate comparable projects within the final construction, so let’s hope so…time will tell!
But for now the station – named Getty Station has turned Sheep Station with sculptor Francois-Xavier Lalanne‘s 25 of his wooly sheep made of epoxy stone and bronze. I mean really…isn’t this just great! Right in the heart of Manhattan you have rolling pasture, neatly trimmed bushes and a white fence complete with sheep!
