Chris Burden's "What My Dad Gave Me", a 65-foot Erector Set skyscraper, will be on view at Rockefeller Center through July 19. It is seven stories tall, consists of one million of the toy pieces, and weighs sixteen-thousand pounds. Although it resembles 30 Rock, Burden insists that it is "a poetic interpretation of 30 Rock, not a model of it". Rather, "it references all the tall buildings in Manhattan". Indeed.
