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.

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