Thursday/ the New York Public Library

The New York Public Library is just over a century old and with 53 million items in inventory its size is second only to the Library of Congress.  One wonders how many of the books are available on-line .. it must be just a matter of time?

Here is the main entrance of the Library on 5th Ave, at its time of construction the largest marble structure in the United States. The building occupies two blocks between 40th and 42nd streets. Check out the two stone lions guarding the entrance.
This sign with a picture of a library lion is inside of the NYC PwC office building.
Here’s a Gray Line bus full of sight seers. The Book of Mormon musical advertised on the bus tells the story of two young Mormon missionaries sent to a remote village in northern Uganda, where a brutal warlord is threatening the local population. Naïve and optimistic, the two missionaries try to share the Book of Mormon, one of their scriptures—which only one of them knows very well—but have trouble connecting with the locals, who are more worried about war, famine, poverty, and AIDS than about religion.
