Fortitude, New York Public Library, New York City, January 2015

Published 2015 April 13

The lion guarding the north side of the library is called Fortitude.

Visiting the library? Don’t miss Public Eye: 175 Years of Sharing Photography, which has so much iconic work on display that I feel nervous being there and often just hide, and William Meyers’ whimsical, lovely photographs from the Outer Boroughs.
