If you’re looking for an unusual destination, stop by The New York Earth Room at 141 Wooster Street.
Created by American artist Walter De Maria back in 1977, the exhibit is composed of a 3,600 square foot gallery that contains 22 inches of dirt. The dirt weighs approximately 280,000 pounds.
Interestingly, the exhibit is valued at around a million dollars. The dirt itself requires regular maintenance by a caretaker, who both rakes and waters the dirt.
The gallery is free to visit, and is open from Wednesday to Sunday, 12-6.
