In order to bring the beach to New York City, sculptor Matt Long decided to create some amazing sand castles on the busy streets. The giant sand castles are shockingly detailed considering the amount of noise and movement that plagues the booming environment.
These massive sand castles are part of a campaign to bring "free and fun summer events to tourists and New Yorkers." Not only can you pick up some clothing from your favorite designers, but now New York City houses a sprawling beach to enjoy some summer fun -- talk about a dynamic place! Long created two sand castles; the first is a traditional piece that could have been directly taken from the medieval era, the second being a giant ship sailing through some sand-driven waves.
