Who's buried in Grant's Tomb?

I was in Manhattan today for a periodic blood test to monitor my calcium level, and it was such a beautiful day that I drove down Riverside Drive to 122nd Street to the mausoleum in which Ulysses S. Grant, a Civil War hero and 18th president of the United States, is in eternal repose. His wife, Julia, is in a sarcophagus next to his.
Across the street from the tomb is Riverside Church, one of Manhattan's landmark houses of worship.
Here's what I saw.

Back in New Jersey, a perfect sunset for a perfect day ...

Beautiful shots, Michael.

Many thanks, guys! I haven't had this versatile a camera since my old 35mm SLRs, and even they weren't as versatile as my new digital SLR.

You're certainly having fun with the new cam, and we get the fringe benefit of the nice photos to look at!

Michael said...

Thanks, Matt!

I said it once and I will say it again, "I love your world"

Michael said...

Thanks, LB, that's very sweet of you!

I have been away from blogging for a while, but I still think about you, and hope you are doing a-ok...

*hugs to you and the kitties!*

Michael said...

Ahh, thanks so much, LB! I'm hanging in there. No news is good news, as they say. I hope you're doing well, too! Hugs to Jinxie!

You're right, no news is good news...
Jinx sends warm kitty-nose nuzzles and pawshakes! (and an occasional swipe of a claw!)
