13. The Feather at Riverside Park

Until June 2016, you can head over to the Riverside Park Bird Sanctuary and see its 12-foot tall feather sculpture. This sculpture, called Sky Feather, was created by Petros Chrisostomou with stained and sealed birch plywood and symbolizes journey and flight. It was formerly exhibited at 124th Street and Lennox Avenue. However, there’s more to this statue than just aesthetic: it serves as a meeting point and place of discussion for park visitors and bird watchers.
