Green Man, in Washington Square Park

Green Man, NYC
Photo by myself, in Washington Square Park, in the Village.

Lots of people were enjoying the sun in Washington Square Park, sunning themselves on the grass and just hanging out on benches.

One of our many superheroes was enjoying the sun, too.


I'm not sure what baffled me more - the green guy in the suit or why I didn't investigate him more when I took this photo. I must be one of those jaded New Yorkers!

It turns out there is a whole movement of Green Men. He or she have been sighted all over the place. I don't know the significance of the green suit. If anyone has a reason, please clue the rest of us in.

The Green Man even has a Facebook page. Click here to see his/her photos.

A couple of months ago they were running through Amsterdam, it has to do something with publicity for I don't know what exactly. But they apparently go worldwide!

@biebkriebels: it must have been a lousy publicity campaign if you don't remeber what it was for...

What a fun capture, Kitty! I wonder where I could get a morphsuit? Do they come in all colors? Ha!

I love stumbling across these things in the city and too funny, sometimes I forget to stop ask about things anymore too. It must be NY.
