« Seven reasons / Psalm 147 [Rachel Barenblat] | Main | The Dylan Watch (by Lawrence J. Epstein) »

December 19, 2008


Doesn't look much like the Bog of Allen or the lonely churchyard on the hill where Michael Furey lies buried. But it's been a long time. Could it be Laura Orem's part of PA? Or -- Las Vegas? Do tell!

Alas, not my neighborhood -- I thought it might be New England?

I took the picture with my phone, on my lunch break. It's at the corner of Church and Barclay Streets (in the courtyard of St. Paul's Chapel), in lower Manhattan. Just beyond is the craziness that is holiday shopping at Century 21 Department Store.

also, "snow was general all over Ireland..."
Must be some Dead Irishmen/women in that graveyard Mr. Joyce.

With your PHONE? Ansel Adams, eat your heart out!
