Facades on Fifth — 9 Comments

  1. I wonder if the store will be closed today and Thursday for Shavuot – just a head’s up.

  2. Love your architectural details, but especially love the needle/button sculpture. My dad used to use 47th st. cameras all the time, and I’m sure a few others he knew well (his office was in the Lincoln Building on 42nd and Madison).

  3. Nice architectural shots!

    On Fifth near 10th or thereabouts there is an apt building with a fountain inside the lobby that has water flowing from an underground stream that was one of the reasons Greenwich Village was able to support the population and agriculture that it did in the early days. You can probably google the info about the location.

  4. I had to smile at these- I made the 45 minute train to Venice several times just for a day of shooting bridges or windows or chimney pots (yep, that’s not a mistype). Oh, or blown glass.

  5. Been enjoying the area(s) I grew up in. My grandfather was the “super” for the Flatiron Building for about ten years (from before I was born in 1938 to about 1946-47. I have a memory of being on the roof with my grandpa and looking over to the Empire State Building. Thanks for sharing and bringing back some good memories.

  6. Nice pictures. I was in New York in 1960. Dad took the family to the east coast for the American Legion convention that year.

    BTW, I have a Canon 7D with a Tamron 18-270mm zoom. I bought the lens from B&H.

  7. B&H…what a place, we were one of their main suppliers as well as customers for many years.
    Besides…a Canon 7D is a much superior camera to a Nikon… When we used to buy and rate cameras for internal use, the bottom line was that Canon always came out on top for most everything and cutting edge technology. On the flip side, while Nikon does make excellent devices, the overall comment was they were still living on their reputation from the film days.
