Place game: the eyes have it

place mystery statue eyes

Update: Congrats to Kelly for being first with the correct answers (we're applying Jeopardy rules to the name) after just 56 minutes. An un-cropped photo is now after the jump.

And a tip of the cap to Duncan and Paula for also getting the correct answer.

(Maybe we'll do this again with some place harder to guess.)
____

Because we could use some fun, let's play a local place game:

Upon which street do the eyes in the above photo gaze? To whom do the eyes belong?* And from which building do they look?

First person to guess all three correctly in the comments will win a very modest prize. If no one gets all three correct by 11 am Thursday (February 26), we'll pick the person with the most number of correct answers. (And, in that case, if there are multiple people with two (or one) correct answers, we'll draw names at random.)

Be sure to include a working email address (that you check regularly) when submitting your comment.

* That is, who is the person depicted by the statue?

What a fun game :)

When the building was dedicated the newspaper reported that it was very uncommon for a man to see such an honor during his lifetime.

Seems like they've put together realistic plans, though I wonder whether the proximity to the ESP ramps would be a deterrent to finding a residential developer. I'd really like to see that Trailways Building kept. We have so few century buildings in Albany that I'd really we rather keep them when we can. And this building is not at all shy about advertising its era. E-Comm 6, however...well, I won't cry if it comes down.
