shadows

hipstamatic app. john s lens. ina's 1969 film. no flash.


this 
is 
no
 longer
 there

  all the buildings
 along Broadway 
between 76th-77th Street
 are being torn down 

I guess
 there will be
 a high rise 
apartment building
 going  up
 in place 
of the
 3 story commercial buildings
 that were there

  the neighborhood
 really
 needs
 another
 huge 
high rise

if the building is gone did you
add the hipsta later or was it
demolished recently

I hate to hear about old buildings being torn down, for some reason it pains me. Thanks for capturing them for posterity.

The grand architectural details will be lost forever to a stark building of glass and concrete...so sad

It's such a shame when beautiful old buildings have to go. Do you have 'listed' buildings over there like we do here, where old buildings are protected by law?

Another high rise? Oh, happy day.


Not.

the green hue is lovely and accentuates the shadows

It is sad but some old buildings need replacing - a lot of changes happening downtown too.
Good capture for the record though!

It is quite sad to see historic buildings go away. At least however in NYC there are still so many amazing places there from 100 years ago. I think the city does a pretty good job of restoring places, more than my hometown. Love the photo, very cool. Have a fab Sunday!!

This is a nice photo. Almost looks like it could be in a Hitchcock movie!

Nicely captured.

Thanks for contributing to SSS2. Burrito's Shadow
Have a blessed Sunday!

This looks so much cooler than a modern high rise!
Love the angle of this shot, and the color.

Great perspective and wonderful tones Daryl.
Happy Sunday to you!

I'm dying to know what's behind that red window covering. Oh, since it's no longer there, I guess I'll never know!

So much character in this old building, but clearly it was needing sacffolding for structural support! That is not good! With all the modern technology, you would would think it could be restored! Lovely "antiqued" tones in your photo!

I always love the angles of your city shots, Daryl.

Always a shame to lose the lovely architectural detail of buildings like this. I like the subtle shadows in your photo.

There goes the neighborhood!

Sad that the old buildings had to go for something new, and tall.
