If you have a trip planned to NYC...don't panic if you think you see people getting ready to jump from building rooftops.

The NYPD is so concerned about an upcoming outdoor art exhibit that it wants to get the word out that figures soon to be gazing down from buildings near a midtown park are an artist's body casts -- not residents in distress.

Police apparently are worried the display might spark 911 calls reporting possible jumpers.

According to the Madison Square Park Conservancy Web site, the work by Antony Gormley consists of 31 life-size figures of the artist cast in iron and glass fiber. They're being installed on pathways, sidewalks and rooftops for an exhibit beginning March 26.

The site says Gormley created the installation for a show in London in 2007.

So if you're headed to the "Big Apple" for some sightseeing this spring...you've been warned!!!
