Photo by myself on Elizabeth and Prince Streets, in SoHo.
A grassy clearing is full of sculpture and architectural remnants, in the middle of SoHo.
This restful, quiet spot is home to the Elizabeth Street Gallery. All sorts of large, old and beautiful things can be found here, many of them salvaged from buildings in New York.
Need a pair of 19th century cast iron gargoyles? How about a 17th century safe that's in the shape of a wooden barrel? Or perhaps just a stately pair of 18th century Italian iron gates?
The gallery's brick warehouse had once been a bread factory. Now it's full of stuff. I haven't been inside, but judging from their website, it's a fascinating place to while away an afternoon.
