"Stickiness Redefined"

Sounding exactly like it is, the Gum Wall came into being when patrons to a nearby theater started sticking pieces of chewing gum to the wall, after getting irritated by having to wait in long lines. When cleaning the walls a couple of times didn't ward off the people, the theater workers just let the chewed gum pieces remain. Today, a popular tourist attraction, the wall is covered with thousands of pieces of chewed gum, making the gum wall 15 feet (4.57 meters) high and considerably thicker at some parts. However gross it may sound, the colorful display of bubblegum coupled with artistic endeavors by a lot of people, make it for an interesting visit. If you decide to make a stopover at this wonderful place, don't forget to carry some gum!
