This exhibition is an imaginative and enjoyable experience this holiday season.

Councilman Mark Levine is ready to tackle the shadows that will be cast on Central Park by the city’s new “super towers”. Levine, who also chairs the parks committee, will introduce legislation that would create a task force charged with looking into the looming threat of the shadows, Capital New York reports. The task force will include the parks commissioner, and commissioners from city planning, department of buildings, environmental protection, and housing preservation and development. Their primary objective will be to research how much of a menace the shadows will really be, recommend ways to mitigate them, and catalogue new developments that may contribute to a too-shady Central Park.
