The photos I snapped of the New York Public Library a little while ago? They were taken after I went to M & J Trimming on 6h Avenue, the library being a few blocks North. I was looking for black leather or felt trim for the new shelf in our tiny co-op lobby. However, M & J only had grey felt, and the black leather fringe wasn't quite long enough! What to do? The helpful staff said to return in a couple weeks when their stock is replenished (I could have ordered sight unseen, but I'd rather see what I am getting). Of course, there are many other places to search for trim in Midtown Manhattan. M & J, however, is the biggest one, and a veritable gold mine. I found the fringe for my portiére curtains in the living room there, which you can see in the first photo. Great place!
