Giant Pair Of Legs Ordered To Be Taken Down

Is it art or just ugly? A pair of female legs in retro stockings are ‘stepping out’ into controversy in one New York town. ‘We feel strongly about art in public places,’ said Janet Lehr. Ruth Vered and Janet Lehr own the legs and share a historic home in the middle of quaint Sag Harbor’s historic district, where the eye catching legs are on permanent display, just blocks from Main Street. ‘The legs have become a monument in Sag Harbor. People say ‘turn at the legs,’ said Lehr. The legs are 16-feet-tall and they were raised even higher when they were perched on a planter. ‘The ruling was ridiculous,’ said Vered. After multiple hearings and debate, the village ruled that the legs’ size and location are not in compliance with code.” w/ photo + video
