Little Manhattan is an incredible, giant marble sculpture map of the island of Manhattan, complete with all its piers, bridges, and landmarks. Sculpted by Los Angeles-based artist, Yutaka Sone, Little Manhattan really isn’t little at all. The 3-foot tall, 9-foot long map is hand-carved out of marble and actually weighs two and a half tons. The skyline of Little Manhattan is circa 2007, and for the most part it's to scale, save for some famous landmarks that are slightly bigger to show detail. If you’d like to see Little Manhattan for yourself, it's on display at the David Zwirner Gallery in NYC.
