You Never Know What You'll Find


One of the more surprising things I've seen here in NYC is this statue. Nothing too exciting when you spot it, until you read the story behind it. This sculpture was 2.5 kilometers from the atomic blast at Hiroshima in 1945. It was brought to New York ten years later and now sits in front of a Buddhist temple on Riverside Drive. Impressive, huh?

Hope you didn't get too close to it. A night shot of it glowing might have been interesting...
