The Garment District Alliance of NYC partnered with the city’s Department of Transportation and the architects working in the Canadian company Lateral Office to create an interactive seesaw playground.

The installation is located in Manhattan, between 37th and 38th Streets on Broadway and it consists of 12 big seesaws that start playing music and illuminating every time they’re used.

A block of Broadway had to be closed for traffic but we think it was worth it. The installation is called Impulse and the citizens and visitors of New York City enjoy it a lot so far. Impulse is a part of a public art program called Garment District Art on the Plazas. 

You can try them yourself if you’re in New York!
