IS THAT A BI-PLANE

Yep
.
Placed and built up there in 1969 by designer Rudolph de Harak and sculptor William Tarr, it's a model of a WWI Sopwith Camel, put there solely to amuse the inhabitants of the neighbouring buildings. It would have been visible from the World Trade Center as it's on nearby Water St, New York
