    NYC’s Day and Night Combined in Stephen Wilkes Photography

    Posted on September 22, 2011 by Lilian

    For this Thursday we’ve made a series that captures a transitioning of day into night within a single photograph. In fact, this is going to be about a fine art project Stephen Wilkes has produced about New York in the beautiful patches of day and night. “Day to Night embodies a combination of my favorite things to photograph; people on the street melded with epic cityscapes, and the fleeting moments throughout the day and night,” noted the author. Well, we should admit that these exceptionally well done photographs add a surreal dimension to various iconic New York places. To split the landscapes from AM to PM and create such a surrealist effect, Stephen kept his camera at a fixed angle for up to 15 hours, then weaved and blended the shots into one frame. Let’s now contemplate all the bustle of the city within these breathtaking shots. Hope, those of you who have never been to NY will have the time to make it up to see this in person.

    Does anyone know what this "Astra" structure is in front of the Flatiron? This pic was taken in 1974 of Henri LaMothe belly-flopping into 12 inches of water. Was that structure supposed to be permanent? Looks like it could have been a news/convenience stand.

    According to Wick, that structure has been there since the building was first erected.
    from Wick...
    "The "cowcatcher" retail space at the front of the building was not part of Burnham or Dinkelberg's design, but was added at the insistence of Harry Black in order to maximize the use of the building's lot and produce some retail income to help defray the cost of construction. Black pushed Burnham hard for plans for the addition, but Burnham resisted because of the aesthetic effect it would have on the design of the "prow" of the building, where it would interrupt the two-story high Classical columns which were echoed at the top of the building by two columns which supported the cornice. Black insisted, and Burnham was forced to accept the addition, despite the interruption of the design's symmetry.

    Google Street View shows it under scaffolding as of Oct 2014. Yelp shows it as an Argo Tea shop, with recent reviews.
