Property’s Morning Obsession: Giant Rubber Duck Floating on City Waterways

Since 2007, Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman has, in the interest of bringing peace to the world, been taking his six-story-high giant rubber duck across the world and sailing it in harbors and rivers. So far, he’s hit Osaka, Sydney, Sao Paulo, Auckland and Amsterdam. Right now the duck is delighting people in Hong Kong harbor, including toddler Yu Kwan Yee who said, “The duckie is swimming.”

Where will the duck go next? It’s obvious: Philadelphia.

It’s true, Hofman hasn’t mentioned Philadelphia–or indeed the U.S.–at all. But it just seems so intuitive. Perhaps this can be added to the Master Plan for the Central Delaware. Until then, enjoy the below video of the duck in action.
