Roosevelt Island Marriage Of Real Estate And Money Sculpture Puts Smile On Face Of A Visitor - How About You?

From the Roosevelt Island Twitterverse:

The picture is one of the three sculptures in the East River near Manhattan Park by Tom Otterness that depict The Marriage Of Real Estate And Money

According to the Modern and Contemporary Design blog: 
Otterness specializes in creating large-scale pieces, mostly of bronze, which is why his work is so well-suited to the realm of public art. The Marriage of Money and Real Estate is a sculptural installation he did just off Roosevelt Island in New York, a set of three sculptures that depict very simply how money and real estate are connected. In a cartoon-like manner, Otterness manages to make this capitalist reality look cute.
Are you

It's the Marriage of Real Estate and Money, but it COULD be art and money.
