Grant's Tomb

This is a view from the entrance to Grant's Tomb, a national monument in Manhattan. Here is some information from the National Park's Service website: Overlooking the Hudson River from the Morningside Heights section of Manhattan, General Grant National Memorial is the largest tomb in North America. Grant's Tomb (as it is commonly called) is not only the final resting place of the General but a memorial to his life and accomplishments."

un beau quartier (pas loin de chez toi, si j'ai bien compris tes explications), j'aime surtout les bancs en mosaïques autour

I have heard of Grant's Tomb all my life...didn't realize it was so large and in NYC. Thanks for the shot and the info.

Another imaginative image, Lori - demonstrating that the details are often as interesting as the whole structure.

Ps. How blue is that sky?!
