I’ve been to the Babylon Library a handful of times while back home in Long Island, but I’ve never stopped to take a proper photo of this sculpture in front of the building.
Called “Sea Dream” the sculpture was created by Peggy Mach and donated to the Village of Babylon in 1983. In it, a boy sits barefoot on a ledge with a book in his lap, staring out into the void.
I love how blissful the look on his face is. He must be having a wonderful day dream about whatever book he’s reading.
Speaking of, what book is he reading? The scrawls on the book cover aren’t really legible.
I guess I’ll never know.
