I’ve got a key to the city ~ let’s go to Saint John the Divine.

Last month I got a key to the city.

This afternoon I opened my first lock in the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine. The opened padlock took us to The Baptistry, a gift from the descendants of Peter Stuyvesant, the last governor of New Amsterdam. I quickly noticed there were other doors (open and unlocked) leading to the Baptistry and it suddenly seemed a bit silly. Lets hope other sites are truly under lock and key.

The best part of the trip was an unexpected view of Keith Haring triptych, The Life Of Christ. It is a bronze and gold alterpiece based on a traditional Russian icon. It was Haring’s last work of art, two weeks before his death in 1990.
