Who knew there was a cemetery in Manhattan? I'd have be that the land was reclaimed for real estate years ago.

Love the dusky shadow of the fence on the monument.

Re Hate the bank, love the building", it's interesting the transformations Bank of America has gone through since Gianini died. When he was alive, the bank, despite its size, never lost touch with its customer base. When he died, the bank became corporate and cold. When NationsBank first bought Bank of America, it got even worse. But they've taken such a drubbing in the marketplace because they had forgotten who they were supposed to be serving (sounds like Washington, doesn't it?) - they had to change. They've gotten very customer-oriented once again. 'Bout day-um time!

Always neat places for images.

Yes! When NationsBank took over BofA, the guy running it at the time had the reputation of having a heart of stone like the "Banker's Heart" sculpture on the plaza of the flagship in San Francisco. «Louis» forgets that man's name, but he seemed to take a perverse pride in being so cold-blooded. His attitude colored the bank. They lost thousands and thousands of accounts in California because of it - BofA under NationsBank became their competitors' best friend because of the former BofA customers going to other banks. BofA woke up and realized they were driving off business and (out here, at least) have made a genuine effort to re-engage with their customers. «Louis» never thought he would find himself writing or saying anything good about BofA.
