Is it a giant rat? A horse? A dinosaur? Those passing by 30 Rock over the past week and a half have probably been wondering what’s going up in the famed plaza (at least we have). Word has it that Jeff Koons is back in the ‘hood, this time with a massive sculpture of a pony, or “Split-Rocker”, grafted in living flowers and complete with an internal irrigation system.
