Looks like a Times Square sort of thing. Were you in the Times Square area... when you took this photo?

David Marc Fischer said...

Yes--more or less!

David said...

Hmmm, this is quite puzzling.

David Marc Fischer said...

Yes, it is. But I'm sure someone will piece things together. Eventually.

David said...

Times Square + game piece = Toys R Us?

David Marc Fischer said...

Ooooo! Clever, but no.

Debbie said...

Was this shot from an escalator? Maybe in the AMC theater or maybe the new arcade next door?

David Marc Fischer said...

No...and no.

Debbie said...

Is this in a restaurant?

David Marc Fischer said...

No, it's not in a restaurant.

Debbie said...

Were you at a Coca Cola store in the Times Square area that I'm not aware of?

Emma said...

is it by ray parker?

David Marc Fischer said...

Emma: What an imaginative guess! I had to do some research to figure out who Ray Parker was! I don't know whether he created those pieces...though my guess is that he didn't create them.

Debbie: No, it's not in a Coca-Cola restaurant.

So far David's the warmest, though it's possible that Emma might be on to something.

Debbie said...

The Marriott Marquis?

Emma said...

times square visitor center on 47th-48th and broadway?

David Marc Fischer said...

Debbie and Emma: Good guesses both! Everyone's warm now, but you could all be warmer. It's not too soon to think outside the box!

emma said...

music box theater 249 west 45th st!?!

David Marc Fischer said...

Sorry...that is a box. But don't let that get you down!

Emma said...

roundabout ford center on 42nd?

David Marc Fischer said...

No, it's not 'round about the Ford Center. Heh.

But if turn yourself around, you might be moving in the right direction!

Debbie said...

Temporary tkts booths?

David Marc Fischer said...

It's not 'round about those, either.

Dolph said...

Drama Book Store on 39th (or 38th) St?

Debbie said...

Are you west of 7th Avenue?

David Marc Fischer said...

Dolph: That's too close to The New Yorker.

Debbie: Yes--I think you might be turning things around!

Debbie said...

North of 47th St.?

David Marc Fischer said...

Yes!

Debbie said...

Worldwide Plaza?

David Marc Fischer said...

Warmer!

Dolph said...

There used to be game store on 57th Street, west of Broadway in (i think) the Sheffield building. The Compleate Strategist? Is it still there? Any luck with this guess?

David Marc Fischer said...

Ah, Dolph...you're too close to The Gershwin! (Of course, I'm not surprised. Heh.) As for The Compleat Strategist, I think it's long gone....

Debbie said...

The lobby of the Novotel Hotel? And if it's not, whatever you do, don't give us a SIXTH puzzle piece!

David Marc Fischer said...

You're right, Debbie--more or less! The puzzle pieces are part of the revolving door leading into/out of the ground floor lobby at the Novotel Hotel on 52nd Street, between Broadway and 8th Avenue.

Where many revolving doors have single pane glass panels, this revolving door has double pane "glass boxes" where the puzzle pieces are suspended.

This unusual door caught my eye (figuratively speaking) a while ago, but it was hard to take pictures of the puzzle pieces when the door was in motion. Then one day I noticed that the door had been stilled, perhaps to increase the air flow on a fine weather day.

That was my golden opportunity! I took pictures of five of the six puzzle pieces and then continued on my way, content that I had found yet another WWI? challenge to amuse and confuse devotees of the game.
