Mayfair S.J.I.
isebrand The #Beresford (1929; 211 Central Park West), seen from near Belvedere Castle, by Emery Roth. Current average price of a unit there is $3,546 per square foot. In 2007, John McEnroe's multi-level apartment there was listed at $28,000,000. There are 175 units in the co-op. It's a sort of steroidal #palazzo (like quite a few other NYC grand stone buildings) with #Georgian influences; 23 stories. #cpw #architecture #realestate #luxury #limestone 1mon

  •   jessraccoon Watermelon head...?! 2mon
  •   isebrand @jessraccoon, I know, right? It's weird. There's got to be a story there, especially given that Watermelon Head is wearing a tie. :D 2mon
  •   jessraccoon @isebrand I like it, but it is indeed kinda creepy also... 2mon

isebrand An 8th-floor-high view of the Siegel-Cooper Building's top floors (1896), Ladies' Mile Historic District, which is mostly in the Flatiron district but also includes a bit of Chelsea. The building has numerous tenants including the highest-grossing Bed Bath & Beyond store in the USA. For a time in the early 20th century, it was part of the same department store that faced it across the avenue, the B. Altman department store complex, and the two structures' combined square footage made the two-building department store the largest store on the planet. The area's many department stores, including several in gorgeous Beaux-Arts structures, attracted throngs of female shoppers and gave it the name the "Ladies' Mile". #SiegelCooper #beauxarts #flatirondistrict #chelsea #architecture #ladiesmile #sixthavenue #sunset #orangelight #manhattan #oldnewyork #baltman 2mon
  •   mckendrickmultimedia Great shot, great info, great light!! 2mon
  •   isebrand @mckendrickmultimedia Thank you! The spring and summer evening light in NYC is unfittingly unsung. NYC's latitude is about the same as Rome's. People tend to forget that. While I think picturesque surfaces for such light are more abundant in Rome by an order of magnitude and every city's literal atmosphere/air is different, NYC should be considered a genuine destination location for photographers and painters interested in working specifically with natural light. I think that is true but not widely appreciated. 2mon
  •   mckendrickmultimedia Well said!! 2mon

isebrand I feel like #lisping. Just because. This lookths like a far and dithtant playth. But it ain't. Itth right here by my houth. #hamiltonfountain #riversidedrive #uws #newyorkcity #tennesseemarble #dolphin #fountain #Victorian #oldnewyork #nycparks #horsetrough Alexander Hamilton's great-grandson funded the construction of this fountain "for man and beast alike". These days the only beasts besides birds and squirrels slurping from it are Jack Russells, Labradoodles, and the like. 2mon

isebrand #schooner #hudsonriver Once again, the Hudson IG filter fails me when taking a photo of the Hudson. ;) The schooner may be the Adirondack, built by Scarano Boat, Albany, NY, and which docks at Chelsea Piers. It's 80 feet long and of Douglas Fir, cedar, teak, and mahogany. 3mon

isebrand Pretty much all the NYers on my IG stream are all about this damnably elusive late-day Manhattan #rainbow. You'd think it was Christ's Second Coming. 3mon
