The Gates won't be installed for a few more weeks, the steel bases are
being laid in place along 23 miles of Central Park walkways. Premonitions
of the 16-foot tall Gates, orange markers brighten the winter landscape,
sole sources of color amongst the bare branches of leafless trees and
sparse grass. The quiet landscape will soon change-by February 12 th,
the 7500 saffron-colored panels will be unfurled, and the Park will be
bustling with tourists from all over the world.
