Give Me Liberty and Give Me Lunch!

I had been curious about the Liberty Hotel for some time.  This hotel used to be th historically significant Charles Street Jail.  My neighbor Rosemary had been at receptions there, so she suggested we do lunch at its cafe, the Clink.  We ate there today at noon.
Before we got there, Rosemary pointed out the new jail.  It looks like a hotel to me.

There's a prison-related artwork between the escalators.  What's black and white and red all over?  The Liberty!

The central lobby is surrounded by balconies.

 This is at lobby level.

Here's Rosemary at our table in the Clink.  The bricks and bars are authentic jail leftovers.  They must have cleaned off all the graffiti and hash marks.
For more pictures go to my Picasa web album.
