Using several image manipulation apps on my “phone” I turned this monstrous palace on Leonard Street in Greenpoint, into a labyrinth of bricks and windows.
This storage building looks like it was made with Lego by a six year old.
From the corner of Kingsland & Greenpoint Avenues.
I walked from the Upper East Side of Manhattan to the Lower East Side after work last Friday. It was about 4 miles total. It felt great to do, but it was also 80% humidity outside and an epic case of swamp ass. Here’s a steamed up shot from East 54th Street .
I know that photographing the reflections in office buildings is nothing new, but I still enjoy it quite a bit.
I love the way things get abstracted on its mirrored surface. I couldn’t help to notice that the ordinarily right-angled building reflected on the left kind of resembles Frank Gehry‘s 8 Spruce Street‘s residential tower.
I wonder if his appreciation of all things abstract are also taken directly from the mundane architectural reality of building clusters like in these midtown Manhattan pictures.
Does anyone else stop to look at these psychedelic distortions? Well, it’s about fucking time, right?
This used to be a blue, single story building along the BQE on Meeker @ Varick, but it has all grown up!
Prior to the addition, it was Conch Umbrellas, a Chinese-owned umbrella manuacturer located throughout the U.S. including right here in Greenpoint, USA.
It could still be them, it certainly doesn’t look like a residential building.
From a distance, I thought that some kind of Ikea pop-up store was happening.
