Call it a Jurassic Park walk.

Life-size dinosaur artwork has made an unexpected appearance on the roof of a Philadelphia high-rise apartment building, The Enquirer reports.

Many people, including former reporter Elizabeth Dobbins and residents of the Riverwalk apartment complex at 23rd and Arch Streets, asked about the sudden death of the 20 prehistoric creatures, which ranged in length from 5 feet to 20 feet. The situation of arrival.

It turns out that property managers, PMC Property Group, want to change things up.

“We wanted to make it more fun and exciting, so the dinosaurs came in,” Louise Giordano, senior vice president of PMC, told the press. “So when the tenants went out and saw that, they Giggle, or smile, or at least, give them something to talk about.”

Residents’ reactions have been mixed. Some were upset that the dinosaur-dropping area, originally advertised as a picnic spot, remained cordoned off.

It’s frustrating that they advertise on tour, say ‘no, you’re not allowed’, and then 18 months later put the dinosaur out,” one resident told the Inquirer.

However, over time, most people find dinosaurs amusing, especially kids who live in or visit apartments.

PMC purchased the dinosaurs from Best of France Antiques in Doylestown, the store said.

Ed Crimi, owner of the shop, which specializes in a range of unique vintage items, has acquired 100 fiberglass dinosaurs through 2020 to place them in his shop’s garden and playground .

Most dinosaurs sell for between $1,200 and $10,000. Krimi said he has about 30 left, 10 of which are being sold to grandparents who want to entertain their grandchildren, or perhaps enterprising property managers who want to change the aesthetic of the property.

Guerrilla art is nothing new in Philadelphia.

Artist Rose Luardo, 50, whose favorite medium is “garbage and trash,” has created a “boo boo garden” from materials sewn together, The Enquirer reports. After exhibiting her work at Space 1026 in North Philadelphia, she put her work on a vacant lot on Washington Avenue.

“These boobs have been in my life and I wondered ‘what’s the next level, what’s the next step?'” she told the outlet. “I thought ‘they’re nourishing, the boobs are soft, they want to hug you, let’s put them on the furniture!'”
