Outside the main branch of the New York Public Library in Manhattan, and around the corner from Bryant Park is this lovely rest area. These two look like tourists….

While I’m travelling, some pre-scheduled one-shot photos.

Fourth in a series of four paintings about the history of reading outside the entrance to the (closed) Rose Main Reading Room in the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building in New York City. The young people seated on the bench could be models for a fifth painting to add to the series.

I’ll be travelling a lot over the next six weeks so I have pre-scheduled some one-shot wonderfuls.

The old Halifax Public Library has been decommissioned. Churchill will be lonely.

Perhaps they’ll move him across the street and up a block to the new library, which is supposed to look like a stack of books, which it does, somewhat, but not from this angle.

The building on this corner was once a bank and now houses a couple of pubs and a restaurant, including Rogue’s Roost.

We hiked up to the Halifax Citadel and walked around 3/4 of it but didn’t go in; it was too nice a day to spend in a museum.

And we walked through the Public Gardens, also shown in an earlier post.
