Amiable Child

Across the street from the West wall of Grant's Tomb - the moving monument of the Amiable Child - ironic and touching due to proximity of the massive marble mausoleum, dedicated to the high and mighty.

I have been trying for half a century to get a little publicity for the little guy -- TV, radio, all sorts of publications, etc. Maybe this is our break. (I love traveling around the world while sitting in my own chair at home.)
