Are those weeds I spy in Mrs. Vanderbilt's garden path?

Marvelous composition. It really does look as if it should be on the outskirts of Deauville, doesn't it?

As to the Washington Square Arch story---testosterone and madness make for a very bad combination. I'm glad I was the sort of little boy who liked to play with building toys and not guns.
