    That would be from the entrance hall mosaics in the Rosicrucian’s Seminary on Dwight Street.

    It’s on some apartments on Durant, between Fulton and Ellsworth.

    Durant Park Apartments, specifically; 2300 Durant. I used to live in apt. 4 on the other side of the tiles.

    another interesting fact is that author Paul Auster lived in these same apartments in the 70′s. I know because I received mail for him once (20 years late). I was able to return it to him when he came through town on a book tour.
