As I stood around, I heard many say the event was the "World's Largest Pillow Fight". This is untrue, as that title is carried by Brookings, South Dakota, which had it out on November 22, 2014, with 4201 participants at a South Dakota State University football game. The crown was previously held by students of the University of California, Irvine (who still hold the record for World's Largest Water Pistol Fight). UPDATE!
Anyhow, as I walked east, I came upon 101 Astor Place, which - in my opinion - currently holds the record for having New York City's Ugliest Public Art on display.
It's so god-awful, and pains me to know it's a Keith Haring rip off.
