Madison Square (temporary)

Currently on display is Orly Genger’s large three-part sculpture simply called “Red, Yellow and Blue.” The piece is made up of 1.4 million feet of nautical rope covered in paint colored — you guessed it — red, yellow and blue.
The three separate pieces are huge, and each is displayed in a different section of the lawn. The bright primary colors and sweeping, flowing shapes add another interesting visual layer to the park. The sculptures will be in place until Sept. 8.
Culinary art is celebrated around and within the park. Great spots like A Voce Madison, Eleven Madison Park and Eataly surround it, and the ever-popular Shake Shack sits right in the middle.
During May, a little tent village called Madison Square Eats sets up on the west side of the park. More than 30 of the city’s best food trucks, street carts and popular restaurants set up booths. This is a great way to sample some of the best of the city all in one place.
Here you will find Roberta’s, Momofuku milk bar, Red Hook Lobster Pound, Mason Jar NYC, Dreamscoops ice cream, Third Rail coffee and much more.
Madison Square Eats is open daily 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. through May 31.
To get to the park, simply walk down Broadway, or take the N or R subway train to 23rd Street or the 6 train to 23rd Street and walk one block west.
