NYC Keys To The City

So, this was too good not to share. Newly-Found-Friend-of-the-Big-Adventure Doug told us this earlier this week about a citywide public art project called Key to The City. It is clever, it is unique and it screams "only in NYC."

The gist of it is that the program involved several Keys to the City were bestowed to...well...anyone in Times Square recently. But these are ACTUAL keys that unlock twenty-four various secret places in all five borough. In a way, what was once a symbolic gesture for the elite, has turned into a functional way to get access to secret parts of the city. Pretty cool, hunh? There is much more to it and the pictures that are posted are worth the click to the site alone. You can still obtain a key without the need for a insanely expensive locksmithbut you only have till Labor Day to get involved.
