A neighborhood texture walk
Today I walked home from a morning appointment in the neighborhood. One of the reasons I love living here so much is the variety of visual textures. I thought I would share some of what I saw today.
The older iron work is becoming rare. I love this intact fire escape.
One of my favorite buildings in the neighborhood is West End Presbyterian Church. The building looks almost like a textile.
Stone and brick work through the neighborhood is varies.
The decay of older fixes also catches my eye.
We don’t think of Manhattan as being very green, but bits of foliage punctuate the landscape.
Last week we had visitors from out of town. They commented that here in new york they found themselves walking much more than they do in their Midwestern home. The is just so much to see that the streets just pull you along.
