New York Countryside
"A trip to New York City to visit Abrams Publishing House about my upcoming book led to the discovery of forty acres on the Upper West Side owned by the Trump Organization. The Old Penn. Square rail station was slated for development and for six months we negotiated for the site against other interests seeking Trump's attention and money. A decision was finally reached by The Trump Organization to allow me to create the image of my choice and that no money would exchange hands.
College students, brothers, artists, and three homeless men worked the summer away planting squash, cucumbers, tomatoes, soybeans, corn, and grass along side rocks, mulch, found materials and flowers to coax out the earthwork. The Image, in the undulating style of Tom Benton, depicted a country road leading out of the pristine Kansas landscape of my youth, juxtaposed against the steel and concrete canyons of Manhattan Island."
