Manhattan Monday 45

Even churches need protection. On East 38th Street just off Park Avenue.

After a visit to the The Morgan Library and Museum (Park Avenue) on a walk back to Pod 39, where we slept, we ducked into this downtown church: the Roman Catholic Parish of Our Saviour, corner of Park Avenue and East 38th Street.

Rush hour outside, quiet inside.

      A friend tells me that the painting behind the altar is a rendering of the Christ Pantocrator icon from Mt Sinai. Do you live in or near Manhattan?

        In Manhattan… these are the kinds of architectural gems I’d walk by on my way to work and rarely get a moment to “play tourist” and take the time to enjoy them. But that being said, I love how easy it is to walk from place to place here, so you get to notice more than if you were driving everywhere.

          True enough, when working or even running errands, it’s sometimes hard to stop and smell the roses – or the equivalent thereof.
