Outside the Elizabeth Street Gallery, in SoHo

Elizabeth Street Gallery, SoHo
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.

Will definitely check this place out. Looks like a lot of fun.

--Write me at my email address. Do you know some of us bloggers' photos have been stolen and are being used without permission? YOur laundry photo has.

Thanks Olivier!

Hi Bibi
wow. Thanks for the heads up. I wrote to you and feel utterly dismayed.

Oh no, Kitty, has one of your photographs been knicked? Do you remember I sent you that link to the article .. http://tinyurl.com/yhyugw4 nationalising "orphan" photography?

Sounds like you may have fallen victim to that. I'm so sorry.

What an impressive mean to measure time and probably nice place to waste it.

Just reading about stealing photography - never thought something like this possible. Wonder how one will be able to find out. Wishing you a nice start into the weekend though.
