This bench mark disk set on the New York Public Library was our first stop on today's laid-back tour of midtown. We easily identified the north corner of the library building but didn't spot the bench mark immediately. A quick peek behind the shrubbery was all it took. It was a bit more difficult to maneuver for a photo, but Rich was able to manage it. The disk is in excellent condition, well protected and probably not in danger of being damaged or moved.
