The New York Times goes big:

The artist Hanna Liden, from Stockholm, was unfamiliar with bagels until she moved to New York. Now she has fashioned her own in styrene and polyurethane in an installation sponsored partly by the Art Production Fund. On Monday, two towers of bagels — plain, everything, sesame and pumpernickel — rose at Hudson River Park, seen here, and the Ruth Wittenberg Triangle in the West Village.

The hope is that New Yorkers will identify and interact with them: chomping photo ops are welcome. They’re five foot around, and they don’t come with a schmear. “I like them simple,” Ms. Liden said.
