A large needle in a park commemorates the "garment" district in Kansas City. It is a needle which stands in the hole of a red button. Probably about 12 to 15 feet tall.

There is a larger giant needle and button in the Fashion district of New York City, looming over an info kiosk at 39th St. and 7th Ave. since 1995.
