Suicidal Sculptures of New York

More examples of Gormley's jumper sculptures that are set up on many buildings around midtown, to the joy of all the allarmed people of the citizen vigilance groups. What better idea to promote NY than with a bunch of suicidal jumpers that make schoolkids scream hysterically "Look! He's gonna jump!" in the streets...
Look very closely, there is a jumper on each photo. Can you spot them all?









Ok now this one is just silly. To keep a bunch of Christmas carollers on the top of your building entrance all year round is just as suicidal to your brains as those jumper sculptures are to their own good.

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
