The much-anticipated Gulliver’s Gate will be arriving in New York this month. The exhibit will be the nation’s largest display of miniatures, and will be on view within a 49,000 square feet of space in Times Square. Spanning an entire city block, the miniatures will include such iconic landmarks as Rockefeller Center, and the New York Public Library, a detailed replica of the ceiling of Grand Central Terminal, and The Standard Hotel, including partiers on the rooftop. Viewers can even peer through windows to see replicas of the interior space.
The team is working with architectural firm Beyer Blinder Belle, model train companies Walthers and Faller, Brooklyn Model Works and others for this feat. The exhibit took 358 days to create with 16 craftsmen. Gulliver’s Gate will open on April 4. The exhibit is located at 216 West 44th Street. Tickets available.
