Even if you’re not completely familiar with the entirety of Gulliver’s Travels, you may fondly remember him as a giant in the small land of Lilliput. While Gulliver’s misadventures were meant to cast a light on corrupt governments and trivial matters being blown out of proportion, the children’s book version of it highlights his thrill-seeking spirit and zest for discovery.
Thus enters Gulliver’s Gate, which recently popped up in the middle of Times Square. While it’s still at its soft opening, the miniature displays will spark a sense of wonder and amazement as you pore over the intricate details and designs of each landmark, pedestrian and backdrop in sight. New York’s display had to be my favorite (mostly because I feel like such a true New Yorker nowadays), with its depictions of the Oculus, Brooklyn Bridge, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Highline Park, Chelsea Piers and of course, Times Square.
Other breathtaking exhibits included the Taj Mahal, Chichen Itza, London Tower Bridge, Helix Bridge…there’s just too many to name. Being able to see such majestic and iconic creations all at once really sparked a deep appreciation for art, creativity, and design. Come check out this exhibit to get fully immersed into the world of travel, and leave with an invigorated motivation to venture out and explore on your own.
