HERALD_031009_02.JPG: This statue is in Herald Square, outside of the Macy's store. The marker describes it as follows:
A memorial to James Gordon Bennett (1795-1872) founder of the New York Herald in 1835 and to his son James Gordon Bennett (1841-1918) through whose vision and enterprise the New York Herald became one of the world's great newspapers.
The bronze figures of Minerva and the bell ringers are the work of Antonin Jean Carles. They stood from 1895 to 1921 above the cornice of James Gordon Bennett's New York Herald building on the north side of Herald Square and tolled the active hours to the millions. In 1928, they were given by William T Dewart, publisher of the New York Sun, to New York University through whose generosity in 1939 they entered on permanent loan. The care of the Department of Parks of the City of New York, that they may be here, restored to their original area of pleasant service, and to their place in the hearts of our citizens. Funds for their restoration were provided by subscription of business organizations whose lives are deep-rooted in the neighborhood of Herald Square. 1940.
Wikipedia Description: Herald Square
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Herald Square is formed by the intersection of Broadway, Sixth Avenue (officially named Avenue of the Americas), and 34th Street in the borough of Manhattan in New York City. Named for the New York Herald, a now-defunct newspaper formerly headquartered there, it also gives its name to the surrounding area. The intersection is a typical Manhattan bow-tie square that consists of two named sections: Herald Square to the north (uptown) and Greeley Square to the south (downtown).
Herald Square proper is the north end of the square between West 34th Street and West 35th Street. The old New York Herald Building was located on the square. The square contains a huge mechanical clock whose mechanical structures were constructed in 1895 by the sculptor Antonin Jean Carles. The monument, known as the James Gordon Monument consists of the Goddess of Wisdom, Minerva with her owls in front of a bell, flanked by two bell ringers mounted on a Milford pink granite pedestal. The monument's bell was designed to chime on the hour. The two seven-foot-tall bronze laborers, nicknamed Stuff and Guff give the appearance of ringing the bell with their mallets, while in actuality is rung by mallets located behind the bell. The figures and the clock were originally part of the 1894 New York Herald Building that was located at the square. Prior to the demolition of the building in 1921, the figures were removed and reinstalled in the Square in 1940.
Greeley Square lies between West 32nd Street and West 33rd Street and between Broadway and Sixth Avenue, and is taken up almost entirely by a triangular park. It is named after Horace Greeley, who was the publisher of the New York Tribune, the Herald's rival newspaper. (The two papers later merged to form the New York Herald Tribune.) There is a statue of Greeley inside the park, created in 1890 by Alexander Doyle The small park is planted with trees and sh ...More...

2003 photos: Equipment this year: I decided my Epson digital camera wasn't quite enough for what I wanted. Since I already had Compact Flash chips for it, I had to find another camera which used CF chips. That brought me to buy the Fujifilm S602 Zoom in March 2003. A great digital camera, I used it exclusively for an entire year.
Trips this year: Three-week trip this year out west, mostly in Utah.
Number of photos taken this year: 68,000.
