After an hour in the Frick, we'll walk back across Central Park and spend about 45 minutes having lunch at the Whole Foods at 97th Street and Columbus Avenue.
Next, we will walk west on 97th Street to Riverside Drive and north on Riverside Drive to 116th Street for a walk across the Columbia University campus to view some sculptures, particularly Scholars Lion by Greg Wyatt, then to St. John the Divine Cathedral at Amsterdam Avenue, where Wyatt's Peace Fountain is located.
