February 11, 2017

Outside The Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine.The Peace Fountain depicts the struggle of good and evil. The forces of good, embodied in the figure of the archangel Michael, triumph by decapitating Satan, whose head hangs from one side. The fountain is encircled by small, whimsical animal figures cast in bronze from pieces sculpted by children.

Entrance: The Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine.

Enormous size and scope.

The FDNY memorial in the Labor Chapel was originally conceived to honor 12 firefighters killed in 1966, but hundreds of personal notes and trinkets of remembrance have transformed it into a moving tribute to the 343 firefighters killed while trying to save others on September 11, 2001.

Tapestries throughout the post funeral repast location.

Wonder and 365 days of Wonder :Mr. Browne's Precepts by E. J. Palacio are next on the reading list.
