The creativity and variety of New York’s architecture is what makes this city unique and special. ‘New York’s Finest’ shares some of CORE agents’ favorite NYC landmarks, buildings and architectural structures.
Alwyn Court, located At 180 West 58th Street, is a 12-story landmark building. It was built between 1907 and 1909, and was designed by Harde & Short in French Renaissance style, with elaborate terra-cotta ornamentation that is covering the entire facade. It has an interior courtyard that also has a painted architectural facade by artist Richard Haas.
I love this building because of its unique ornamentation that resembles lace fabric from some points of view. It exemplifies craftsmanship from every angle. To me it is pure art!
