Philip Johnson designed an entire park -- Thanksgiving Square (technically triangular) -- under the direction of a private-public commission to create a special place to nourish the spirit and take a break from decadent urban chaos. The attraction includes a bell tower, a 14-foot high "thank you ring" that looks like a giant gold wedding ring, lots of grass and elegant waterfalls, but the structure that will surprise you is a 58-foot spiral of white marble. It is dwarfed by the surrounding skyscrapers, but passers-by always keep their eyes on it and walk slowly.
