George Segal. "Gay Liberation Monument"

Legendary sculptor George Segal created the above sculptures as a commemoration to the events that happened in the Stonewall Inn right behind the sculptures. Those events sparked an uprising of protests and marches based on protecting gay rights. Segal is well known for his white-painted bronze casts made from plaster moulds from human models.

Unidentified Dinosaur Mural at Third Avenue & E13th Street

At the corner of Third Avenue and East 13th Street, there is a mural of a brontosaurus that catches many people off-guard. The dinosaur mural appears in many websites and publications but I have not been able to locate who the creator of Manhattan's Loch Ness monster is.
