There are 19 of these manholes by Lawrence Weiner, a project with the Public Art Fund installed in 2000. They were originally found in the West Village, Washington Square area, Union Square area and Astor Place area. Today, one of the last ones is part of a permanent installation on the steps of the Whitney Museum of Art.
