Maria Cornejo's City Guide

Madison Square Park

“In the city, Madison Square Park has been doing a great job of putting out public art. Teresita Fernandez recently had a beautiful mirrored exhibit in the trees and Paula Hayes just did an amazing snow globe exhibit this past winter. The park is a nice little oasis in the city.” -Maria Cornejo
