The Andy Monument is a temporary public art installation created by Rob Pruitt. It’s located at the NW corner of Union Square between the Starbucks and Petco - you can’t miss it. This is said to be the location that Andy once stood to sign copies of Interview Magazine. The shiny chrome statue shows the pop art icon sporting a blazer, Polaroid camera and clutching a Bloomingdale’s bag.
Warhol’s Factory was moved from 47th Street to the sixth floor of the Decker Building at 33 Union Square West in 1968. The hot spot for after-work drinks was undoubtedly Max’s Kansas City, located conveniently on the other side of the park.
On display until Sunday, October 2, 2011.
