Serendipity to remain in Tompkins Square Park through April

[EV Grieve]

Back in June, we saw the arrival of "Serendipity," the life-sized sculpture of Christopher Gamble's silhouette in Tompkins Square Park. The silhouette is in honor of Gamble, who was homeless for nearly 28 years. Fanny Allié's creation was expected to be in the Park through this month.

However! Fanny let us know that the work will remain in the Park until April 25.

Soooo... given its stay through winter, it's likely good that someone saw fit to put a hat on the sculpture...

...which actually matches the leisure suit that someone put on it late last month...


Gamble now lives in an apartment run by the Bowery Residents' Committee.
