004 005 006 007 008

More pictures from 113th Street as the north wall of St John the Divine gets covered up, obscured from view, secreted away and hidden. January 2015. Pretty soon it’s going to be all gone, except a peek here and a corner there. It’s very cool watching this happpen,this disappearance from public view of an important religious icon. Will keep you posted.

    It’s so sad. I’ve been there a few times and love St John the Unfinished.
