You probably don’t think about sandcastles being anywhere other than on a beach, but how about one in Manhattan?

A team of builders is working to construct a 16-foot-tall sandcastle in the middle of Rockefeller Center.

It’s part of the Center’s “Sand & Surf” installation, which also includes palm trees and seascape topiaries.

The sandcastle will use about 16 tons of sand, and even though it can’t compare to the neighboring skyscrapers, it will no doubt stand out.

The installation runs through Sept. 7.
