Facades of New York

I’ve noticed how much I enjoy photographing facades of buildings. There’s so much diversity in them—loads of fun colors and details, too. I recommend Ulysses’ for a beer, Miss Lily’s for brunch, Jeffery’s Grocery for happy hour, and Gia’s Garden Jewels for a slice of East Village local flavor.

    New York is full of gorgeous facades! We definitely try to recreate that where I currently live but nothing is as good as the original thing. These photos are wonderful!

      Thank you, Angel! I’m sure Florida facades have a charm of their own, though! I’m imagining some beautiful, beach colors.

    These are beautiful pics! If you haven’t already, you should check out Bill Cunningham’s exhibit at NY Historical Museum (https://www.nyhistory.org/exhibitions/bill-cunningham-facades) – it’s supposed to be awesome. Ah NY! :)

      Thanks Anar! Oh, this exhibit looks awesome— I definitely bookmarked it. And all these amazing facades can also be a part of your backyard if you so choose ;) ;) ;)
