Saturday morning I took the train into Manhattan to the gym on 45th and Lex for my daily swim. Afterwards I walked toward Grand Central Station to catch the #7 to Long Island City Queens to spend the rest of the day shooting in Gantry Plaza State Park . Now, living in NYC all my life you would think I have seen it all, but as I was entering GCS I happened to look up at the overhang or awning atop the entrance and saw three rats climbing up the overhang poles! Not real rats (thank God) just little sculptures of rats, but rats all the same. I thought who the heck commissoned these rats? Were they part of the original architecture? Why rats? Does anyone out there in blogland know? If so please let me know via this blog. It boggles the mind doesn’t it. Enjoy the pics.
