I was walking down Sixth Avenue (Avenue of the Americas) in Manhattan the other day, when I noticed this in the street, somewhere around 47th or 48th Street. It’s a Toynbee tile, and there’s quite a story and mystery surrounding these things.

At any rate, when I was trying to learn more about it back then, I discovered a documentary that was a fascinating watch – check out the trailer here:
