it’s the little discoveries that make cities great

Was on my way to meet up with a friend I had made from the Preservation Trades Conference in PA a few weeks back when I passed this little hidden gem.  Now it’s a hotel on 5th Ave in NYC so it’s not so hidden but I was passing the lobby along a side street before I made my way actually onto 5th.   And of course it was super fancy and I had no business being in this hotel but I just couldn’t resist.  I slipped inside as quietly as I could and stayed for a bit to admire the beauty and craftsmanship that had caught my eye from all the way across the street.



images don’t do the design justice
