A new sculpture was unveiled Monday at the West Farms Square Plaza in the Bronx.
The 26-feet-tall artwork "For Closure" is made from locally salvaged doors and resembles a house of cards.
It is meant to represent the fragility of the housing market.
"A lot of people already talk about financial collapse so I don't necessarily expect the piece is going to bring more attention to that, but I do hope it humanizes that experience a little bit, reminds people that all these homes are actual people's lives," said artist Gabriela Salazar
The temporary art work was brought in through a partnership between the Bronx River Art Center and the Department of Transportation's Urban Art Program.
"For Closure" will be on display for seven months.
