On view now through March 18, architect James Rossant’s whimsical installation "New York Live" has taken over the five myles gallery (558 St. Johns Place at Franklin Avenue). Rossant’s walk-in installation embodies the breathless and ongoing evolution of New York City, said gallery owner Hanne Tierney. "It’s a strange funhouse where the sedate older city is crawling with flexible new creature-buildings - there’s no city planning here."

James Rossant served as the master planner for the cities of Reston, Va. and Dodoma, the capital of Tanzania, as well as for New York’s Lower Manhattan plan in 1969.

Enjoy the installation with a backdrop of music on March 9 at 6 pm, when composer-musicians Adam Fisher, Oscar Noeiga, Jane Wang and Nataniel Gonzalez will perform. The gallery is open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 1 pm to 6 pm and by appointment (718) 783-4438.
