The Family

A wintry scene at Bleecker Street Playground, with Chaim Gross’s evocative sculpture, “The Family,” as the focal point. Created in 1979, Gross’s work stands out against the backdrop of snow-dusted trees and a red-bricked building, emphasizing the connection and unity depicted by the figures. The statue, adorned with a gentle layer of snow, with figures that appear frozen in time, their interlocked forms suggesting the timeless nature of familial bonds. The playground is mostly deserted, aside for a few individuals in the background, perhaps due to the cold weather, which further highlights the statue’s presence.
