This website is a personal website, not for any commercial purposes whatsoever, it stems from my life long love of classic New York architecture.
I’m a born and raised native of New York City, other than the requisite four years of university and then two years of graduate school. I love New York and while I occasionally think about moving elsewhere and have travelled the globe and consider myself “at home” in many cities I suspect I will spend the rest of my life here. I have little connection to anything that has to do with real estate and or design, although in college did take enough art history and design classes to get a major in the subject, that’s not the professional path I’ve taken.
New York is a fantastic walking city, it’s probably the best way to get around, other than of course the subway. At first glance sometimes we think of the city as simply a concrete jungle that seems to go on for ever, but by hoofing it on foot and actually taking the time to look up once in a while the architectural design on many, if not most of the older buildings has a staggering diversity – so that’s kind of the purpose of this site, to record and post and perhaps even become some sort of a repository of the architectural detail of the classic architecture of our town. So far I’ve enjoyed how the site has been progressing and over time I may build further on the idea and see where it takes me, but we’ll see.
