The detail image of Battery Park is just an enlargement taken from the first picture. I can post any section of that photo from below about 65th street at the same level of detail. If anyone wants to see a particular area or street in detail, let me know.

For the ESB, it is easy to spot - look for the largest shadow.

That's the only vantage point from which Stuyvesant Town appeals to me.

Because of buildings cross shapes I have visual associations with a cemetery.

To answer the questions: Yes. Stuyvesant Town is in Manhattan (it begins on 14th St. and 1st ave.

The Staten Island Ferry Terminal can be found in the satellite photo above that contains Lower Manhattan's Battery Park (the Park at the southern end of Manhattan that faces New York Harbor). If go to the far right of Park, along the water's edge, facing almost due south is a large building. That is the Staten Island terminal.

Thanks, is it easy to find from the battery park subway station? I was just there a couple months ago and they were doing a bunch of construction. The above image must have been before they started all of that because i don't see anything going on.

If you take the green line to Bowling Green and then take a 2-minute walk south along the eastern edge of battery park, you'll run into the new terminal (see the link below). It just opened in Feb 2005.

That's quite amazing! I'd like to see the area Jane St corner Washington in West Village :). My boyfriend just moved in there and I'm supposed to join him in about three weeks. It would be nice to have a look on the neighbourhood from up above...

Thank you for your fast replies! One of the photographs even made it on the cover of my farewell party invitations.
The move from Amsterdam to NY was more exhausting than I thought it would be, the whole organization took me two more weeks than expected. But now I'm finally here, enjoying the bustle, discovering the neighbourhood step by step. I just wanted to thank you people for welcoming me!

The 23rd Street building in the center of the lower third of this photo is in my opinion the single most awe-inspiring building in New York from street level.

It offers a vision of infinity. Babylon was never so magnificent.



(This building understands perfectly the obligation that comes with occupying an entire city block. The only other building that comes close is the white brick SOM Modernist monolith on the Upper East Side. You know: the one Fabrizio likes so much ... where Joan Crawford once lived.)

I agree it's a great building. I used to walk by it alot. I believe it is called London Terrace.

It's currently getting it's face re-done -- all the terra cotta is being cleaned and repaired and the beautiful brickwork cleaned and repointed.

The density is just so incredible and New York.

Of course, if it was proposed nowadays, everyone would come out to protest it as being too dense, cause too much traffic, overwhelm the schools, sewers, etc.



Look, nary a gap in the streetwall...

To be nit-picky, it does play with the streetwall, with setbacks from the sidewalk at numerous intervals, bumping in and out, but not drastically. That creates a terrific visual rhythm along the block and allows space for small plantings out front between the building and the sidewalk (which also break up the mass). On the opposite side, along W 24th, the corner blocks of the building meet the sidewalk but 3/4 of the building at the center section (probably a 500' stretch) is set back from the sidewalk ~ 20 feet.

It's very civilized -- and, as you say, very New York.
