A road full of books leading to a building full of books

After Toronto, I popped into New York on the Sunday and hared off to my favourite place, the New York Public Library and walked the library way. This is an absolute fascinating place. Previously this road leading to the Library was a back road, just fit for delivery vans delivering food and stuff to the restaurants on 42nd street, but now 41st Street from Fifth Avenue to the Park Avenue/Pershing Square Viaduct is a fascinating place. Why? well, look down, not up, you will see both sides of the street studded with brass plaques which quote from a variety of books and poems. So I was wondering what to delete and what to show, and then thought, sod it, all of them are lovely and beautiful.

But the best part is this little statue hidden on the side, shows two kids reading a book, most civilised, no? such a lovely sculpture indeed. So come with me while I walk up and down the Library Way.
