I am always discovering new (to me, at least) things in this city and today, while walking from the far east 30s to Times Square, I made a wonderful book-related discovery. My zig-zag path serendipitously took me to Library Way. Embedded into the sidewalk on 41st Street from Park Avenue to 5th Avenue, leading to (or from) the "main" library are sculpted bronze plaques illustrating accompanying quotes about literature, knowledge, information and reading. I forgot to bring my camera, but the link above will take you to images of the plaques. There are so many wonderful quotes and images it is hard to choose a favorite, but the poem by Bohumil Hrabal, a poet I had never heard of, might be mine. Which is yours?
What serendipitous discoveries (book-related or otherwise) have you made in New York?
