Opus 40, New York

A deserted quarry that was transformed into a sculpted environment by a Harvy Fite, a stone sculptor who bought the property. He worked on the six acre project almost single-handedly from the late 1930's to his death in 1976. The result is a serpentine network of walls, paths and terraces, made from the "junk" stone, left in the quarry, placed into formations without mortar. The site is open to the public, and hosts concerts, plays, and other outdoor events.
