More Papal Prep

The center of it all -- the residence of the Papal Ambassador to the United Nations (middle building of the three)

Things continue to get interesting around the corner from me.  As I walked to Central Park this afternoon I passed new evidence of preparations for next week's stay by Pope Francis.

Apparently the street will be completely closed to parking beginning early Tuesday morning (two days before his scheduled arrival).
Newly posted No Parking signs adorn the block
Meanwhile, at the Fifth Avenue end of the block steel gates and a police sentry box have been delivered and are awaiting placement.
