Midtown, Seventh Avenue Between 31st and 30th Streets

Mary Sargent © 2008 ……….. click to enlarge

I posted this photo in spite of its pathetic unsharpness because I like the Manheimer Building. It's a forgotten old building, dirty and uncared for, but it was probably a pretty thing when it went up, with its jade green accents. And what were the windows like? Also I thought since it had a name, I'd be able to find out something about it. No. At least not through Google. The red sign in the bottom window says Psychic Readings, Tarot. I should have gone in to get a reading so I could see the inside. The letters next to it say Honor Realty.

See map.

Hi Mary!

I was poking around to see if a database of Manhattan streets might be available and came across this.

What a nice project.

So I see you are doing well.

Funny, I have been working with some vaguely similar themes. Grab shots of NY streets from my cab.
Doesn't really have any direction or form though.

As part of my new life as a driver I also train drivers at the LaGCC taxi program. Hence the 'map-lecturer' thing and the research that lead me here.

Going to bookmark you. Keep up the good energy.
