new york sandsculptor matt long is giving city slickers a slice of the beach. an intricately crafted 5.5 meter (18ft) sand tower has popped-up in downtown manhattan’s financial district, astounding metropolitans who ogled from their skyscraper windows. the mammoth construction is detail-rich, adorned with renaissance architectural elements including tiny carved turrets, windows, drawbridges. a second sculpture is formed into a massive ship, with billowing sandy sails and crashing waves. long is a professional sandsculptor, who has developed and designed a set tools for the everyday beachgoer to carve and mold their own creations. the series is presented as part of a city-wide campaign to bring free and fun summer events to tourists and new yorkers.
