Hudson Yards — an area once known for its slaughterhouses and a cow tunnel — is bringing the cows back home. The new arrivals are among a selection of the work of over 70 artists on display with the aim of raising money for God’s Love We Deliver.
The CowParade sees 21 uniquely painted and imaginatively transformed fiberglass bovines displayed throughout the shops and public square at Hudson Yards from today (Wednesday) to September 30. They’ve been designed by artists like Neil Patrick Harris, Zac Posen and Lizzy Tisch.
The “parade” ends with an auction and proceeds will benefit God’s Love We Deliver — the New York non-profit which cooks and home-delivers nutritious, medically tailored meals for people too sick to shop or cook for themselves.
The last time CowParade took over the city was in 2000 when it raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for New York charities.
The cows will be grazing across the five boroughs — including at Macy’s and Bloomingdales in Manhattan. It might even give you another reason to take the new midtown ferry to Staten Island to view their “pasture” there.
