‘Patience,’ one of a pair of world-renowned marble lions lying proudly in front of the New York Public Library, couldn’t see a thing during Hercules, the winter storm that pummeled the Northeast.
‘Patience’ guards the south side of the steps to the beautiful Beaux-Arts library in Manhattan. Her partner ‘Fortitude’ graces the north. Both were named for qualities New Yorkers showed in weathering the Great Depression.
