PROSPECT PARK -

Thousands of yellow pinwheels are now on display at Prospect Park in honor of the landmark's 150th birthday.  

The Prospect Park Alliance paired with Are4 and Architect Suchi Reddy to present the moving art installation of the pinwheels to the public.

The over 7,000 pinwheels are on display inside Prospect Park's two-acre former Rose Garden.

Organizers say visitors are even allowed to add their own pinwheels to the collection.

They will be on display through July 17.
