the ugliest corner

really

72nd street
at
riverside drive
 has
 the 
oddest 
ugliest
 collection
 of
 architecture 
in 
the 
neighborhood

 on sunday 
toonman and i
 walked 
down
 through the park
 to
 eleanor's statue

 we sat for a few minutes 
in the sun
 toonman's legs 
occasionally ache
 when
 he's not been walking in a while
 ahem
 while we were sitting
 he pointed out
 the
 two water towers
 in the distance

  see for yourself

  1. New York City water towers have always fascinated me. What happens when they start leaking all at once? ;-)

  2. Hmm, so you got Toonman trained as a spotter now. You guys are a team.

  3. You got me to notice towers everywhere. I love the building on the left (the round one) but the others are uninspiring.

  4. Nope, "odd" and "ugly" aren't working for me. Sculptural and angular and symbiotic and complimentary and balanced come to mind. You know, it's all your fault, because you take such brilliant photos! :)

  5. Okay, all I can think about is how cold those park benches must be during the winter months.

  6. When I went to New York, I loved looking at all the different buildings. Awesome picture!
