Though the new World Trade Center seems to have demoted the Empire State Building to second skyscraper tallest in the city, a version of the building made of coins stands tall in Elmsford.
Ricardo Zamudio, a Hartsdale resident, has created an eight-foot replica of the Empire State Building made only out of pennies.
The title is, appropriately, "Just a Penny" and you can go admire it at the Greenburgh Public Library during regular hours.
According to Nancy McCrory, PR person for the Elmsford branch, "It is a fascinating sculpture with lights and a King Kong at the top. He began collecting pennies approximately 10 years ago. After the events of 9/11, Ricardo wanted to create something to remind himself and others about the great city of New York."
The Greenburgh Public Library is located at 300 Tarrytown Road, Elmsford. (914) 721-8216
