water tower wednesday - 23rd Street

 Whilst out and abouting 
with Shelley and Darcy 
this past weekend 
we stopped in the Flatiron District 
to get pix of the Flatiron Building

It was getting on 3 p.m. 
the sun was blessing 
this red brick building 
with a glowing kiss 
as the water towers atop looked on.  

Those windows face Fifth Avenue at 23rd Street

  14. Do you know???? I assume none of the water towers you've photographed are actually working are they?????? And that brings up the question, how exactly do water towers work????? It is probably obvious but just something I've never given a thought to.


    Boy, sure stirs my imagination of what used to be.

  17. That building is amazing. The lighting was just perfect -- AND a double water tower shot.

    I love the Flatiron Building! I was lucky enough to have a chance to be invited to an event there last spring. Neat old building.
