The New New York Times Building

The New York Times has moved to its new digs on 8th Avenue.  Right across from the Port Authority Bus Terminal.  Not a ritzy neighborhood, but who am I to complain?  The new building is between 40th and 41st Street.

The building is actually pretty big, but the Times only occupies part of it.

Oh, they have a “watcher”.

Who watches them from under the overhang?  Who stands vigil on the Gray Lady?

Yeah, that’s him.  Ralph Kramden:  bus driver, Raccoon Lodge treasurer, and dreamer (or so the plaque says).

This isn’t the first time that Ralph (aka Jackie Gleason) has show up in my wanderings.
