Day 121

Rockefeller Center reflections

April 29th, 2012



St. Patrick's Cathedral, in the background, is the seat of New York's archbishop (whose deceased predecessors are entombed in a crypt beneath its high altar), and it's currently undergoing a much-needed multi-year renovation that — you never know — might shed some light on the mystery of the missing cornerstone. Also visible is the armillary of Atlas, who just recently underwent a good cleaning himself.

    Beautiful photo. Also, I saw that crypt! Behind the altar there’s all kinds of stuff!

    I used to work in this building. Very familiar with this whole area. Another virtual walk for me, down Memory Lane. :-)
