Where is this building?Originally posted by ablarc
Central Park West at 106th Street. Condominiums now, this was built as a cancer hospital in the 1890's; people came there to die. It's in Loire Valley style, like Hunt's Biltmore House. It lay vacant, ruined and neglected for about a quarter century while its surroundings gentrified; now it's one of the best places to live.
I'm fascinated by urban rooftop terraces - thanks for including some.
Wow! The last couple times I passed through Kansas I did not stop in Manhattan. It sure has changed since I spent time at Fort Riley in the mid-80's!

Indeed you can usually tell when the concepts of democracy and citizenship are weakening. There is an increase in the role of charity and in the worship of volunteerism. These represent the élite citizen's imitation of noblesse oblige; that is, of pretending to be aristocrats or oligarchs, as opposed to being citizens.
The images in this thread are now hosted in the Cyburbia Gallery. See http://www.cyburbia.org/gallery/show...y.php/cat/6517.
This thread is going to suck up a lot of bandwidth in the future, but given that Ablarc has been hosting the images in the past to our benefit, it's our turn to host them now.
