That's the top of the main building behind me. It was just too crowded to get any good pics of the front entrance, so we didn't try.
Maddy said that there's one really odd thing about it now - what's now the lobby used to be a big courtyard in front of the entrance. Sometime between 1983 and 2002, they put a window wall around it and turned it into a new, larger lobby. The thing that makes it odd is that now several rooms in the Cardio-Thoracic Unit have a lovely view of the lobby instead of outside.
You can't beat the view from the parking deck, though. This is a nice moody shot of the Mid-Hudson Bridge.
Just a picture from near Beacon to prove that yes, we do have sun here.
That last one sounds like a cross between a pug and a turtle. Or would that be a purgle?

"As long as you do it responsibly, and don't take more than you need," Aura said. "I think your fella was talking about it in that interview you showed me."
(My fella? I kind of wish. She means John Ashton, who does indeed like fishing.)
"I've never tried it," I admitted.
"I did. At a rainbow trout farm in Tennessee when I was a kid. Somewhere there's probably a photo of me with a hat like yours and a fishing pole," Maddy said. "And no, I never caught a thing. All these poor fish in a cement pond probably not being fed so idiots like us could come by, rent a pole and pretend we were actually out there being sporting and all and nope - not a nibble." She shook her head. "I've got a bad feeling it was the aquatic version of that awful buffalo farm in Bless The Beasts and the Children."
"Besides, fish paralyzed by helpless fits of laughter are somewhat easier to catch," Aura added.
(It's all kind of moot since none of us have a fishing license, but oh well.)

And check this link out: Fabien Cousteau's Mission 31. Thirty-one days under the sea. Sort of like living in the world's most awesome aquarium without having to scrape algae off the front of the tank every other day to see the fish.
Maddy: "The plants should take care of that. Eventually...."
