Library Lion



The two iconic lions that stand guard outside the New York Public Library were nicknamed Patience and Fortitude by Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia. I’ve never known which was which. This one might be Patience because he’s putting up with an enormous wreath that is not only too big for him, but is an affront to his dignity. iPhone photo.
