  1. The colors and textures of this building are stunning-- more like a painting than a decayed building.
    Gorgeous photo!

  7. Beautiful ruin of a building and it seems a "natural" for those fashion shoots! The capture gives it such life!

  16. At first I thought this was a 'haveli' in India, a mansion owned by wealthy merchants of the early last century, Beautiful place.

  19. I have loved old decaying buildings from when I was a small child. I'm not quite sure why, but I have. Something about them touches me deeply.

  20. If walls could talk . . . I bet this building would have a lot to say.

  21. Since I love Venice, I get the idea of loving decay.

  22. I can see why it's a popular place for photo shoots. I'm surprised, given its location, that it' been allowed to fall into such a state.

  23. When I first saw this Daryl, I immediately thought of the Boathouse (?) near 70th Street...there was a restaurant there at one stage...am I thinking correctly, but I don't think this could be it somehow?
