Tag Archives: Manhattan
A few weeks have gone by since my post “Building Code” about my small endeavor into the architecture of Manhattan. So below is a collection of images of new buildings, mainly from the East Side, that I thought were beautiful.
If you haven’t noticed already, I have a thing for doors, and I really always have. I remember going trick-or-treating in a Las Vegas suburb one year, where I was visiting my best friend, and at every massive carved wood door we came to, I gasped that I loved, needed, had to have it.
The first picture, of the light Robin’s Egg Blue door, is perfection on Elizabeth St. It is so whimsical and otherworldly, but at the same time completely modern.
I live three blocks away from one of the best weekly flea markets in Manhattan. Though it is entirely coincidental I am still a huge flea market goer and scavenger and I did not pick the location of my current apartment so that I could see the market from my balcony.
I usually go every few weeks, although the past two weeks I went twice, much to my bank account’s dismay. But no fear! I only ended up buying two things and the total was $30. The pictures for those purchases will be put up at a later date when I work them into an outfit.
But for now these are a few of the things I wish I bought and a taste of what the Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market is all about.
Between my internship, my job, and just my daily life I have been (literally) trekking all over Manhattan the past few months and with the help of my trusty iPhone (yes, that is a shameless Apple plug) I have been able to take some pictures of beautiful, often passed over buildings, and quickly upload them to my computer. I have amassed a little collection of these, and there will of course be more of these pictures as the year goes on.
