Up Fifth Avenue to St. Patrick's Cathedral
It was a beautiful day to walk along Fifth
Avenue toward St. Patrick's Cathedral. We hope
that you enjoy it, too!
Here is the way Fifth
Avenue looked in the vicinity of
the library. The view is toward the north, and at the very end
you may be able to see the green trees of Central Park.
If you are wondering where all of New York's fabled traffic is, I can only say
that it was very light all day, perhaps because it was a Saturday in midsummer.
Here is a typical view of the
sidewalk looking south along Fifth Avenue.
The library is on the right.
We reached the cathedral and went
inside. It was such an important experience for Mali
that I had to capture at least some of the views on film. This is my
first and only attempt with available light. I had no idea it would come out
The same place captured later by
flash. The man stood there for a long time, resting his hand on various parts
of the statue and obviously being deeply moved by the
experience. I did not want to intrude on his meditation, but he was staying
there longer than I was able to wait.

to the cathedral.
