|One Day It Was Thanksgiving - The Parade|
|The Next Day It Was Christmas at the New York Public Library|
The main library seemed to be hurting. The main reading room was closed down because a chunk of plaster fell from the ceiling and they have to inspect the whole thing. Many other parts of the library were closed off and the long gallery room with the paintings was being used as the reading room. They were asking for donations all over the place. The Metropolitan Museum of art was a different story. It's being kept up beautifully.
