Bicycle rack outside of the new Trader Joe's?
Trombonist Hall of Fame?BTW, I greatly appreciate that your puzzle uses very few pieces!
Wow--this is like some kind of Triple Alliance. Okay...David, your eye does not deceive you. And between Scott and Debbie, you might well be onto something!
You must have been in Battery park.
Well, of course I've been there...but it's cold now.
The Musical Instruments section at the Met?
A little warmer.
the lobby of some building near lincoln center?
Jazz at Lincoln Center in the Time Warner building.
Warmerer, but way too close to Reno!
Radio City Music Hall?
About as warmerer, but way too close to Cuzco!
Okay, so somewhere on the Upper East Side?
That's about right...but you've got to zero in on it more. This gold has no value without you being in the middle of it, if you catch my drift.
dude i TOTALLY don't catch your drift. but i do know that this is inside a building on east 57th street.
Sorry--you don't know. But you're much warmerer anyway! You could stand being closer to Montreal.
House Of Blues - New York?
New York? Oui. House of Blues! Non!
you were in ther french institute on east 60th street.
Formidable! Scott is correct: I was in the stairway of Florence Gould Hall at the French Institute Alliance Française at 22 East 60th Street between Park and Madison Avenues. I was there to see John Waters host a screening of the Marguerite Duras film Le camion, which alternates road footage with banal scenes of Duras and Gérard Depardieu going over a script. As you can imagine, the event was a riot! (I think it was sold out, too.)I made it a point to go to Florence Gould Hall months after the 9/11 attacks for a screening of one of the most colorful and cheerful movies I've ever seen: Jacques Demy's musical Les Demoiselles de Rochefort. That was the kind of uplifting experience I craved at the time. I still listen to the soundtrack when I need a lift.Through March 31, you can participate in an online trivia contest hosted by the FIAF. The theme is American Movies in Paris. Bon chance!I thank the French Institute Alliance Française for giving me the okay to post both interior photos. At present, I do not have additional information about the name of the sculpture or the artist who created it. I like the piece, which is above the stairway, and figure that it often goes underlooked.
I'm delighted to note that I recently heard from Jacqueline Chambord of the French Institute. She identified the artwork in question as Brass (1988) by the French artist Arman (1928-2005). Jacqueline also confirmed that the screening of Le camion was sold out and pointed out that the entrance to Florence Gould Hall is at 55 East 59 Street.Merci, Jacqueline!
