Dragon Crash-Landing Site Appears in NYC for Game of Thrones

Michele Debczak

It appears as if one of Daenerys Targaryen's dragons is on the loose in New York City today: In promotion of the DVD release of Game of Thrones season five, Union Square's north plaza has been transformed to resemble the site of a dragon crash landing, Gothamist reports.

Skid marks of torn-up concrete, plumes of smoke, and reptilian footprints have been on display in the park since early this morning. A toppled lamppost and a crushed park bench left in the dragon's wake can also be seen behind police barricades.

After fans have had the chance to soak in the scene of destruction, they can head over to Herald Square at 7:30 p.m. tonight to watch a 20-minute computer animated featurette from the DVD called "The Dance of Dragons." The screening will include a 3D projection of a dragon soaring across the New York City skyline as well as a special appearance by an unnamed Game of Thrones cast member.

You can catch the season six premiere of HBO's Game of Thrones on April 24.
