Roving Rube


June 17, 2003

The Waldorf Astoria, Midtown Park Avenue Entrance












The Rube has been applying the word "gilding" to anything golden that he sees -- but is it all gold leaf, or is it just painted gold?

Does the former last longer, or glow even more? Can thieves scrape it off and sell it? Perhaps we will find out some answers as we do this series.

Other gilded NYCJPGs: 10/31/01, 11/3/01, 11/15/01.
