Queens?

David Marc Fischer said...

Nope!

You know, sometimes I get the feeling that "Queens?" is a euphemism for "WTF?"

Debbie said...

Lincoln Center?

Scott said...

Columbia University?

David Marc Fischer said...

No and no, Debbie and Scott.

gary said...

Brooklyn?

David Marc Fischer said...

Wow! It's a guessing explosion!!

But no, Gary. It's not Brooklyn.

Scott said...

Fordham Law?

gary said...

Were you in Manhattan?

Debbie said...

Is this a synagogue?

David Marc Fischer said...

No, Gary...it's not Fordham Law.

Yes, Gary--Manhattan.

So far Debbie and Gary have had the best (better?) pairs of guesses.

David Marc Fischer said...

Debbie, it's not a synagogue (and I hadn't seen that guess when I referred to pairs of guesses).

Debbie said...

Scott guessed Fordham Law so now the "pairs" clue is totally confusing!

I'll guess you were on the Upper West Side...say, north of 72nd Street?

David Marc Fischer said...

"No, Debbie," replied David, as wide swaths of the city continued to be eliminated from consideration.

David said...

51st & Broadway?

David Marc Fischer said...

No, David--but that's a relatively good guess.

gary said...

Were you below 42nd St?

David Marc Fischer said...

"No, Gary," replied David as another vast tract of the Big Apple went out of consideration.

gary said...

Were you at the Trump globe sculpture at Columbus circle? (although I can't recall any brick around this)

Scott said...

140 East 45th Street?

David Marc Fischer said...

Warming up, Scott!

Debbie said...

Is it east of Park Avenue? Just for the sake of keeping the ball rolling...

David Marc Fischer said...

Yes, Debbie: It's east of Park Avenue.

Scott said...

51st Street and 2nd Avenue?

David Marc Fischer said...

Warmer, Scott!

Debbie said...

Is this in front of a residential building?

Scott said...

Is this in front of medical facility?

David Marc Fischer said...

To the best of my knowledge "residential building" is a yes; "medical facility" is probably way cooler.

Debbie said...

Scottie, you're way cool, babe! But you already knew that.

Debbie said...

Okay, were you in the East 60's?

David Marc Fischer said...

Well, Debbie, now you're "way cool" too.

gary said...

Were you north of 55th st?

Scott said...

45th Street and 3rd Avenue?

David Marc Fischer said...

No, Gary.

Scott, your guess is in the right neighborhood but you've been warmer.

gary said...

Were you at the Turtle Bay Garden Apt's 226-246 E. 49th St. between 2nd and 3rd Ave?

David Marc Fischer said...

Gary, you are now in the same warmness zone as Scott!

I was worried that it might take a century before anyone uncovered the location of this place...but I'm feeling more optimistic now.

Debbie said...

54th St. and 1st Avenue?

Debbie said...

Forget that last guess... 47th and 1st Avenue?

David Marc Fischer said...

Very warm, Debbie!

Scott said...

46th and 1st Avenue?

David Marc Fischer said...

Cooler!

Debbie said...

48th and 1st Ave?

David Marc Fischer said...

You've got it, Debbie!

The sculpture, Suffusion by Arthur Carter, is in a public space by the northwest corner of 48th Street and First Avenue--part of the 100 United Nations Plaza complex. There's another, larger Suffusion at George Washington University in Washington, DC; this might be yet another one. Closer to the complex's entryway is another work by Carter--it resembles this. Carter seems to have a fascination with repetitions of simple geometric forms (ovals, rectangles, and so forth). I wonder if he's a doodler.
