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.
