a medieval spring

full flush of springtime still  in nyc --- and fort tryon park was spectacular --- john d rockefeller jr paid to develop it in the 1930s, including buying parts of the palisades across the river in new jersey to preserve the view

hare and hounds running under the stone sill

nice reconstruction of a doorway, with a little window to its rear showing older carvings that were re-used in the 12th century
a 12th century chapter room, used as a stable for centuries before acquisition in the 1930s
a detail, there at the left, from a genealogy of jesus
