The artist mentioned that the gates are not made to be seen from above. The following two pictures were taken from a friend's apartment above the Central Park West. Although they are so beautiful, this is not the point. Overlook view of Central Park is beautiful no matter what. "The Gates " is to be experienced, to be felt.

I don't know the artist's intention about the night view. I like Central Park at night. The park becomes mysterious. The saffron drapes are nice in dark.
