  1. I stayed at a place doors down from the Dakota called the Olcott that played Liza Minnelli's home base in "New York New York (1977) with DeNiro.
    Thrilling to just walk past the classic building. . . . Rosemary's Baby, Lennon. . . . .

  3. Yup, that's one of those buildings! If I walked past it I'd just stop and stare and couldn't move for a while. It's like that with some buildings in Prague and in Oxford. People pass by asking me if I'm OK and there's this woman standing there staring up at the architecture and tears and welling up. Some things are just so sculptural they take my breath away.

  11. Elegant with the architecture of that period. Love the Four Seasons which can only partially be seen on the second level. This could be any city in Europe, but what a treasure to have this in NYC.

  13. I see another building that I want to visit someday! Actually, I know that I need to spend more time in Manhattan on our next trip East. (The way things are going, we might not have a son in Brooklyn after this summer, though. Who knows?)
