A sculpture by Anish Kapoor is modeled after his famous Cloud Gate, known as The Bean, in Chicago. The New York City sculpture has been nicknamed Mini-Bean. It's 19 feet high and 48 feet long.

Kapoor also sculpted an upright, skinny Bean in Houston. The NYC Bean looks kind of flabby; maybe the idea is getting old.
