Upper East Side Architecture

There’s a building right off Fifth Avenue that always catches my eye whenever I walk past. I don’t know what I love most…the amazing architecture, the iron fretwork, the topiaries on the tiny balconies, the blue-green details…it’s all just gorgeous and feels like a little piece of Europe right in the middle of NYC.

    Nice to catch glimpses of these beauties when I never really notice them.

    It's so refreshing to see pretty, historic buildings like this. Proof that classic character will remain strong despite rapidly changing times. Love it!

    I wish more people talked about the architecture in NYC. It always takes my breath away. Maybe because I'm a fan of classical style.

      I agree, there's so much beautiful architecture in the city. It's so nice to stumble upon it.

    Gorgeous, gorgeous. I miss that old architecture – don't see that often in Nashville!

    Where exactly is this? So beautiful!

      It's east of Fifth Avenue on the Upper East side, somewhere in the low 70's I think…I forget exactly where.
