This line started small on Tuesday and now has grown to about 4 blocks long snaking it’s way down Church Street. Why are they waiting in line for days on end? Sneakers go on sale Saturday.
A little past the line headed up Brattle Street I ran into this kiosk:
There’s no sign stating what it is so you have to hunt through the cards to find this:
From Wicked Local Cambridge:
Question: where do you go to find out if Santa is real? For reassurance in true love after a rough break-up? To find out why there is so much hatred in the world?
Answer: Harvard Square, where on June 14 Cambridge artist Johnny Monsarrat unveiled his Wheel of Questions/Wheel of Answers projectâ€™s new public venue, along with the hopes of breaking a world record for the most written questions answered in a year. The wheel will remain outside the Citibank at Brattle Square until October.
â€œMinisters, therapistsâ€¦they help about a dozen people a day,â€ said Monsarrat, as black and red clad folk dancers from Belmont group Red Herring Morris performed as part of a recent unveiling ceremony. â€œI want to help 100.â€
Partnered with a yet-to-be-revealed beer company, Monsarrat plans to answer at least 10,000 community questions posted on his â€œTibetan prayer wheelâ€ by the end of 2009.
So come to Harvard Square if you want to stand in a ridiculously long line for tennis shoes or if you want to see what Google would be like as a kiosk.
