New York City Gargoyles, Part III: Faces of the Brooklyn Museum Sculpture Garden

The first time I visited the Brooklyn Museum's sculpture garden, it was under construction. Overgrown ivy covered dozens of ragged stone carvings that had been rescued form New York City buildings scheduled for demolition. (You can see some of those earlier photos here and here.)

Since then, the garden has been cleaned up and renamed the Steinberg Family Sculpture Garden. There are fewer carvings there now, but the ones that are there are characters. Here are some of my favorite stone faces from this month's visit.
