Gormley Scares NY

New York cops are fed up with Antony Gormley's body casts of himself on their city rooftops. Since his Event Horizon installation thingy began last month, they've had to respond to at least 10 calls from citizens who think Gormley's casts are real people about to commit suicide by jumping off buildings. It's the same nonsense he perpetrated on Londoners three years ago (CLICK). "We're short of cops to begin with and we don't have enough cops to waste answering calls of statues committing suicide," commented a disgruntled officer. Why not arrest the alleged artist and remove his tosh?
