Washington Heights, Audubon Avenue Between 192nd and 191st Streets

Quite an odd building, don't you think?  With its birdcage balconies down one side and a blank wall on the other.  Wouldn't it be great to have a large parrot in each of those balconies?  Does it surprise you to know it was built in the dreadful 60's?  The architect:  Joseph Douglas Weiss.

It's the Isabella House, housing for seniors, with different levels of assistance.  It might almost be tempting (complimentary linen service, e.g.) except it seems to be completely beige, inside and out.  So depressing.

See map.
