three


This
 is the corner 
of 
West End Avenue
 and
 72nd Street

 can you see
 the water tank/tower 
there up on the left?
 they are everywhere

 here
 we have
 4 
maybe
 5 
different 
architectural looks
 its a veritable
 cacophony

my focus 
was on the
 3 
'brown' 
brick
 buildings

 don't you wish someone 
would wash that awning? 

I do.

  2. My focus went to three floors of the roundish tower. In any case, love the mix of architecture.

  10. Those water towers can sometimes be creepy...like they're watching you....I've seen too many 50's horror films, I think.

    Yes, I would love to wash the awning...gimme a brush with a loooong handle.

  11. I didn't even notice the awning until you mentioned it (but, yes!) because I was too busy admiring the architecture. Love that corner building!

  13. Ah! I was trying to decide what the "three" was before I read the post... The mix of architectural styles makes the city I think! I just want to live in a tower like the one shown...

  14. You could probably do a 360 in one spot and see at least 1/2 dozen different architectural styles in the city...and that's one of the things that's so great about NY!
