    According to Paul McCarron''s The Prints of Martin Lewis, this work depicts "the lower steps of St. Patrick''s Cathedral at dusk, with the lighted windows of Saks Fifth Avenue department store in the background. Lying on the steps is a discarded newspaper, the Evening Observer, with the headline ''Love Nest.''"
