Wallet Card at the Big, Big Penny

Back when I started doing the wallet card photos around Manhattan, I solicited requests (still open to any I get). Steve of The Greatest 21 Days suggested I check out a website called Roadside America. I did and found several interesting objects I was unaware of. Perhaps the coolest was a sculpture called Big, Big Penny that is in a hotel lobby on 53rd Street. A statue of a giant penny is weird enough but what makes it really cool are all the little characters around it.

The sculpture:

  1. Good stuff. Looking forward to the next road trip where I can put that site to use again.
