Some Time in Midtown Manhattan

       Last week I attended a training workshop near Times Square; rather than hassling with the rush hour traffic both ways, I took the Metro North train into Grand Central.  And I got close-up views of two of New York’s architectural icons. 

       Grand Central Terminal, which opened almost 100 years ago. 

       The main branch of the New York Public Library, which opened 2 years before Grand Central, in 1911.

       But the unexpected treat for me came as I walked west on East 41st Street, also known as Library Way.  Along that stretch, inspirational quotes about literature from people such as Thomas Jefferson, Gertrude Stein, Descartes, and Yeats appear on plaques embedded in the sidewalk.  It’s worth the stroll…
