This is Tony Rosenthal's steel
sculpture "5 in 1," which represents the 5
boroughs: Manhattan, Brooklyn,
Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island.
Check out this link to see what it looked like
in its prime and why it doesn't still
look quite that pristine and shiny.
I also learned that graffiti has been a big
problem—which is a bit surprising when you
consider that this thing is in front of 1 Police Plaza!
