Have you seen the sidewalk on Library Way in NYC?
If you haven’t, on your next trip to the New York Public Library on Fifth Avenue, walk along 41st Street. You’ll have a perfect view of the building (look up) and plenty of inspirational quotes about reading, writing, and literature (look down) along the way.
Garson Kanin’s most famous quote, from his hit play “Born Yesterday,” is there on the sidewalk.
Garson Kanin, who broke into show business as a saxophone-playing high school dropout and went on to write ”Born Yesterday,” direct ”The Diary of Anne Frank” and become the co-writer of two classic Tracy-Hepburn movies, died at his home in Manhattan in 1999.
