Windward Sculpture on 3rd Avenue and 42nd Street

Okay, I admit it. I spend too much time looking up at one of my favorite buildings in all of NYC. And let’s fact it, the Chrysler Building is on everybody’s short list of favorite buildings in NYC.

Maybe that’s why I have walked by a 1961 sculpture by Jan Peter Stern called “Windward” about a bazillion times without noticing it. It’s only about a block away.

Or, maybe it’s because they have it tucked away in a little corner.

Or, maybe it’s because it doesn’t seem to have anything to do with the word “windward” at all. To me, it’s just another bit of artistic flotsom from the 1960s.

But if you want to see it, it’s on the southeast corner of the intersection.
