Upper East Side, 71st Street Between Third and Second Avenues

I hate to show you this skewed photograph but you do need to know that Marymount Manhattan College is on this block.  Although the college is small, (about 2,000 students), it seems as if there should be more to it than this one building, but, if so, where is it?

Marymount used to be affiliated with the Catholic Church but now isn't, due to the decision to bestow an honorary degree (in 2005) on Senator Hillary Clinton, " one of Congress's most outspoken and strident advocates of abortion rights."  The college was sticken from "The Official Catholic Directory."  Well done, Marymount!  Also Hillary!  Read about it here.

See map.

Did you sit on the sidewalk to get this shot?

No, I really didn't have to go out of my way to make this pretty bad photo.

I'm getting used to my wide angle lens is why. Or trying to.
