Article Photos: Living room built around NYC Columbus statue a hit 5/6

  Leaders of the Italian-American community and civil servants from New York, including police and sanitation workers and other guests, pose for pictures and also arrive in what is known as the living room created by artist Tatzu Nishi that surrounds Gaetano Russo's 1892 sculpture of Christopher Columbus 75 Feet Above Columbus Circle Sunday, Oct. 7, 2012, in New York. The art installation “Tatzu Nishi: Discovering Columbus," which brings people to eye level with the Columbus statue, became part of an annual wreath laying ceremony that celebrates Columbus Day.
