Upper West Side, 95th Street Between West End Avenue and Broadway


Mary Sargent © 2006

Week ago Saturday, I took a bag of clothes to the Salvation Army on 96th Street just west of Broadway and then walked 96th Street to Riverside and back on 95th Street. That stretch of 96th Street is dull, dull, dull, or at least it was that day and in that hazy uninspiring light. The only good shot I got was a close-up of a truck, very nice, but really belongs in a different photoblog. Maybe CloseupPhotoblog.com.

So back on 95th Street, this fascinating house. So flat, so white, so unfinished. See the light above the door? I must come back at night.

I love this! So unexpected, so stark, so European (except for the car).

Thank goodness the car was black - just wouldn't have been the same any other color, although white would have been interesting.

The dark roof tricks me into thinking that it's night and the building is strangely lit.
