Upper West Side, 71st Street Between Broadway and West End Avenue

Mary Sargent © 2008 …….. click to enlarge

I'm showing you this photograph so that we call all send waves of sympathy and compassion to the occupants of the white house.

This block of 71st Street is a bit higgledy piggledy: it has tall but old apartment buildings on the ends, then medium size apartment buildings, and a bunch of townhouses, all different, in the middle. And now a brand new condominium joining them.

This is what it says on that soon-to-be condominium's sign (just out of the picture): "Introducing the Classic Twelve Prewar Condominium to the Upper West Side".

What do you make of that? I didn't know you could build a prewar building.

See map.
