Morning Walk #33 - Madison Square Park

Shakespeare on the Best Buy building at 6th & 23rd marks the spot of Booth's Theater.  Edwin Booth, arguably the greatest actor of his time built the theatre in 1869.  Today Edwin is, perhaps, not  so well known as his younger brother, John Wilkes.

My apartment is 84 degrees so the weather feels GREAT!
