A Home for Friendless French Girls
(Above: Orphan Girl at the Cemetery by Eugene Delacroix. What do you think she sees?)
What did I take away from this fascinating article on the fabulous blog Ephemeral New York? That the Jeanne D'Arc residence hotel in Manhattan is run by nuns and was once known as a "home for friendless French girls."
Oh the things my imagination might do with such a place! Sometimes that's all it takes--just a five word phrase.
