Central Harlem, St. Nicholas Avenue Between 117th and 118th Streets

Nothing to say about this one except that I'm crazy about flat blank surfaces with oddly placed little windows. I get the same feeling when I look at this photo as I do when I smell cilantro, a brief moment of ecstatic pleasure. It might be a defective gene.

But you won't know what I'm talking about unless you enlarge it. It's so, uh, diminished when it's small.

See map.

Interesting that you note the flat surface because that is the first thought that struck me - I really like the flatness of the building in the background with the angle of the brick building. Almost like the brick building is pointing out the white one.

Mary, a wonderful photo! Startling, yet soothing after the initial look (and it seems to look right back at me).
