Morgan Library

They were very fierce about not taking pictures in the Morgan Library - so I could only take a picture of the gift shop from outside when it had begun to rain.
The red velvet curtains in the drawing room were stunning..........
I liked the exhibition of ms. from 20th century authors - Kerouak, T.S. Eliot, an early edition of Siegfied Sassoon's Memoirs of an Infantry Officer.

Arather fierce looking building facing on to Madison Square Park - but look how big the windows are.........

I think I will have a moritorium on pictures of the Empire State Building pretty soon - though it is impressive.

Back to the Morgan Library - a nice curved building - no expense spared both when it was built and when it was renovated......and the food is delicious.


  1. Hello..
    just published yesterday a collage about New York on my blog.
    Yes, I was born in Germany:-))
    How about your mom?
    cheers Gisela

  2. I don't think you can ever have enough pictures of the Empire State Building. It is one of my favorite buildings ever. Magnificent.

  3. The Morgan is one of my FAVORITE places! The bookstore, the museum, even the bathroom is nice. Oh, so civilized. I used to work near the Morgan and hang out in the bookstore during lunch hours. That was before the renovation. I don't get there as often now.

    And yes, they are fierce about their rules. I've been reprimanded there on occassion. But what a wonderful place. Another fierce and lovely place is the Frick. Do you like it there?

    I just might steal your idea of taking pictures from the outside. Your shot of the bookstore window is great! I really like it.

    And, thanks for mentioning that the food is good. I've never dined there, but I'll give it a try.


I look forward to hearing from you!
