field trip without kids

Went to have lunch with our friend Taz today in Manhattan. He's working on the stained glass reatoration in the St. Thomas church on 5th Ave.
He had lured me with a tour of the actual construction, but then realized they were too busy to show me around today, so we just had lunch, which was tons of fun, too. The church is quite lovely and the glass -at least from what I could see meandering through the pews - is crazy.
I didn't write it down, but there was a "Prayer to Our Lady of Fifth Avenue" attached to a statue.
Now, if you'd asked me before today about such a prayer, I would have said it's probably a song by Leonard Cohen.
Could still be, for all I know.
