Cable ties. They are so good at tying cables. And one of the many things I love about New York City? On a recent visit to Manhattan, I was a bit entranced by this random Cable Tie Art wrapped around several street light posts around Astor Park in the East Village. But this wasn’t the work of some random, stealthy street artist, this was a real art installation called ‘flaming cactus’ thanks to a partnership between New York City’s Department of Transportation and Animus Art.
