New York City Gargoyles, Part I: The Famous Gargoyle of Gramercy Park

I've just returned from a trip to New York, a city I hadn't visited in years. I haven't yet sorted through all the photos, but in the meantime here are a few photos of one of my favorite gargoyles: the famous carving at Irving Place in the Gramercy Park neighborhood of Manhattan.

This fellow is a street-level gargoyle, rather than perching high above the ground like most of his brethren. And he's not just one fellow, but a whole set of nearly identical carvings on columns running down the side of the apartment building next to other stone creatures.

More photos to follow next week!
