Once upon a time—well, last week—a beautiful woman in a bridal dress was found asleep. She was perched above the doorway of a brownstone on Fourth Avenue Street , in Brooklyn. The cops were called. Inside her bag was a ring from Tiffany. The Park Slopers wondered: Was this real, or just some N.Y.U. project? Was it art? What is art anyway? The message boards soon swelled with theories.

The truth may still be unknown for now, but at least a consensus can be reached.
