Roving Rube

August 28, 2003

Mary's Garden, U.N. District

What's New

This fountain spills into a reflecting pool which is divided by a footbridge.

Mary's Garden is a tiny pocket park facing Dag Hammarskjold Plaza (see yesterday's fountain). It is an exceptional quiet place and the Rube tiptoed around taking these pictures, trying not to disturb the two people who were reading there, and fretting whether or not to turn off the artificial "click" his camera makes to indicate that the picture has been taken.

This page requires a 6.0+ browser for the pictures/text to display correctly. If you have an older version of Netscape, Explorer, or AOL, the text will appear cut off and the pictures distorted.

Site Tips: If you have Explorer or AOL (recent version), and a mouse with a scroll wheel, you should be able to move the mouse anywhere over the text at right and scroll it with the wheel, so you can still see the picture while reading.

Most of the pages have a large version of the main picture which you can make your wallpaper by first clicking on it to download, then right-clicking and choosing "Set as Background".
