The BLT BAR & GRILL is the place to eat in the Wall Street area……..if you’re having a “BURGER” attack……….and maybe a beer.
Make your way to 125 Washington Street…….in the Downtown “W” Hotel. The interior is “hip”…..[but a bit dark].
You’ll have more fun out on the patio under a shady umbrella.
The pizza is nothing to rave about so stick to the devine burger. RARE !!!
Just across the street is the site of the new 9/11 memorial pools……….

The Art of the “ALABASTERMEN“ is the current exhibit by MOBIA at the American Bible Society on Broadway. It is called OBJECT OF DEVOTION.
THE FIFTH SIGN OF THE LAST JUDGEMENT
All of these hand carved devotional works were done circa 1400 to 1450. The craftsmen in England were very busy carving visualizations of the Christian Scriptures…….ignoring the Old Testament………concentrating instead on the contemporary cults in Europe who preferred images of Saints, Jesus and the Virgin.

the fifth sign of the Last Judgement
When HENRY v111 was made the head of the church [the reformation]……..he declared that all Catholic images be destroyed……….it was carnage in the monasteries and nunneries. Most of the alabasters were destroyed. The surviving carvings are those that had been sold abroad.
This collection is from the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
Support for this exhibition also came from the Atrium Café by GABRIEL’S, my favorite restaurant on the westside of New York.
