Largest See-Saw Ever

August 27th, 2010. Jamaica, New York.  Sharani reports on her elevating ride on the world's largest seesaw, the lastest of Ashrita Furman's Guiness World Records, and Utpal reveals the construction-journey nail by nail from start to finish in his blog Reaching New Heights.

Why a 79 foot seesaw in the middle of Jamaica Queens?  Ashrita describes his latest inspiration: “As an expression of gratitude we celebrate Sri Chinmoy’s 79th birthday with a 79 feet long see-saw, which gives happiness to children small and big. Sri Chinmoy himself was such a childlike, happy person and he inspired me to set records with his weightlifting world records. His philosophy is that through happiness we can have peace.” A photo tells all!
