NYC – Washington Square, Flatiron, and NY Public Library

The day was cooler and a bit hazy as we started out.  Our first stop was the Washington Square area.

Our timing was lucky for a short organ recital at the first 1st Presbyterian Church!

Here’s a little wild life and a dog’s life.  There are lots of little dog parks around and lots of dog walkers too.

    GREAT POST GRACIA. Loved the buildings and, indeed, the library is beautiful. i am amazed at all the flowers after the snow you had last week? thx for a beautiful virtual tour. janet

      Thanks, Janet. Actually these pics were taken before the snow but surprisingly the flowers made it through fine. The snow melted in a day but lots of tree limbs came down because the snow was heavy and they still have all their leaves!

      I had to go to Google to find out what you were talking about! Don’t know how we could have missed that but it’s pretty cold here. He probably has on more clothes now!
