A small world in NYC

The whole world is in NYC. It’s a teeny tiny version of the world, sure, but landmark parts of North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Russia are all there with unimaginable amounts of detail. The $40-million project that is Gulliver’s Gate features 300 miniatures: Cambodia’s Angkor Wat, India’s Taj Mahal, Machu Picchu in Peru, Jerusalem’s Western Wall and more, all with itty bitty people from monks to zombie mummies to The Beatles. Constructed at a scale of 1:87, some of the models have movable and interactive parts, sound and light. Seven design teams based in workshops around the world created the miniatures either by hand from wood or using computers, 3D printers and laser cutters.The exhibit opened on April 4 in a huge space in the old New York Times building on West 44th Street in Times Square. Adults 13 to 64 US$36 (or US$31 online); kids three to 12 US$27 (US$22 online).
