A walk by the water

Seal Of the City of New York

After seeing The Bourne Supremacy with bobhowe and eleanor and eating dinner at Southwest in the World Financial Center, which I can enjoy again now that I don't have work lunches there twice a week, I walked down the Battery Park City promenade and took some photos with a new lens.

Shown here is the seal of the City of New York, one of several reliefs by the sculptor Paul Manship (who did the sculpture of Atlas at Rockefeller Center) rescued from the demolished New York Coliseum. Along with two companions (the New York State seal and the seal of the Triborough Bridge and Tunnel Authority, which is to say, Robert Moses' imperial seal), it's mounted on the front of the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel building, which was made famous (sans seals) as the headquarters of the Men In Black.

Complete photo set.
