Gertrude Stein at Bryant Park

I love Bryant Park.  It’s small and flat with a perimeter of trees and seating and a center area that’s typically grass (when it isn’t an ice rink or Fashion Week temporary buildings).

And it has one of the strangest statues around.  Not strange in the sense of modern art sculpture or anything.  It’s a lifelike (at least I think so) depiction of writer Gertrude Stein (1874 to 1946).

Appropriately for a writer (or do I mean “properly” or “advantageously”?) her statue is right behind the New York Public Library.
