The Gates

I am sorry, but the Gates are just really ugly. Even in the snow they are ugly. The color is all wrong, it just looks like construction. A complete waste of money. A total publicity stunt. Just awful and ugly. I think the only way it would look good would be to set fire to it!!

The Gates suck!
Sincerely,
Jennifer Anderson

It's a matter of taste. I thought they were very festive and pretty. They made a of interesting effects when the breezes blew through them and when the sunlight caused patterns to appear on them. I wish they would stay longer.

Yesterday, walking near the Met, I overheard a contrarian make a remark to a friend that suggested a softening of her initial negative assessment of the project. Perhaps there are those who went the other way, from liking it to hating it...who knows? I can only conclude from my humble observations on the 26th and 27th that the project touched untold thousands of people, and created a totally novel way in which to experience the park. It was my first time in the park; the park and this project will now forever be linked in my memory and imagination. The issues of beauty and relative worth seem almost moot now, as our individual opinions about those matters become less important and the project's legacy beomes part of the never-ending larger story of the city itself.
