Here is a installation my cousins and I found last year when were around the South Ferry area.  The installation was called "Playing the Building" by artist David Burne.  It's a pretty interesting installation.  I loved the space (the Battery Maritime Building) that it was in and the concept behind the installation was very cool.  There is a piano in the middle of the space which has wires coming from it that are attached to different parts of the space rigged with some sound producing element--banging pipes, squeaking, etc.  Visitors are encouraged to go play around on the piano to produce different combinations of sounds
