Washington Heights, Broadway Between 165th and 166th Streets

So back to civilization. My first opportunity to exit Riverside Drive was at 165th Street, and exit I did, and walked back to Broadway so I could take the subway at 168th Street. Across the street was this very fancy building. Hm, says I. Could that be—is that the Audubon Ballroom? But this isn't Harlem. Okay, now I know the Audubon Ballroom is not in Harlem; it is in Washington Heights. Just doesn't seem right.
For a history of the building, click here. Don't expect to read much about Malcolm X though; this writer is writing about the building. For a wider shot of the building, click here. For a close-up of the arch above the doorway, click here.
