Watch where you’re walking or anyone could miss stepping on a sculpture. Sculptor Lawrence Weiner engraved 19 different manholes around New York City. Companies Roman Stone and Consolidated Edison Inc. supported Weiner’s project and helped make it possible. His manhole covers read,”In direct line with another and the next.”
