NEW YORK (AP) — A sculpture by Isamu Noguchi (ee-SAH'-moo noh-GOO'-chee) is on display in a Manhattan neighborhood where the Holland Tunnel connects New York and New Jersey.

The abstract work, called "Octetra," went up Monday on a plaza in Hudson Square.

The geometric red sculpture is over 7 feet high and consists of five, four-sided triangular pyramids. There are about a dozen casts of the work.

It comes from the collection of Julie and Edward Minskoff and is presented by the Hudson Square Connection and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. The length of its stay has not yet been determined.

The late Japanese-American artist also specialized in furniture and set designs. He created the stainless steel reliefs at a Rockefeller Center building that once housed The Associated Press.
