The man on the moon on West 21st Street

This iron fence outside a residence between Eighth and Ninth Avenues pays homage to the iconic image from A Trip to the Moon, a 1902 French sci-fi film in which a spaceship from Earth lands in the moon’s eye.

The film—only about 8 minutes!—is pretty wild. Watch it here. The rocket in the eye scene happens about 4 minutes in.
