Manhattanville, 126th Street at Broadway

I was going to say something about Manhattanville tonight, something along the lines of, it used to be a separate village before New York City overtook it in the early 1800s, and then I was going to wonder if it's still much thought of as Manhattanville and should I actually be using it as a separate area, so I started researching it and . . . I was reading and reading and reading and now it's 4 a.m. and I think we should all just go to bed.

Manhattanville tomorrow.

But first, what's the first thing you think of when you see that big white sided building? Is it, wow, what a fabulous spot for a good street artist?

See map.

Call me crazy, but I like the wall the way it is, without anything on it. It's such a nice backdrop to the steel framework and the geometry of the gas station.
