Is it likely that these visually engaging playground slides, which resemble two of NYCs best loved architectural masterpieces, would exist anywhere outside of the Big Apple? Probably not.

Two Towers Playground Slides

Any New Yorker can tell you that the blue one is modeled after the Empire State Building, while the white one is an homage to the Chrysler Building. I spotted them at a playground that appears to be part of a day care of pre-school, located on West 26th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues (I think).

The slides are rather low to the ground, so I think they are for pretty tiny kids.
