Viewed as a piece of conceptual art, 'Living Room', sits 70-feet above ground level and is only accessible via a scaffold-encased staircase that has been temporarily built around the Columbus Monument in Columbus Circle. Beginning September 20, up to 25 people at a time can enter the living room and view the 1892 marble figure of the Italian explorer. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)
