Stuyvesant Polyclinic-a gem on 2nd Avenue

Another building soon to be lost?

2nd Avenue Library
Oil on canvas
36 x 46 inches

While reading Jerimiah's Vanishing New York blog today, I saw this mention of one of the grand old buildings on 2nd Avenue, which might soon be on the endangered species list - oh no!! I painted a portion of the facade of this glorious building way back in 1986 and wanted to share it with you today, as you never know how long this building might remain a part of the New York scene. Nothing makes me happier than seeing the older buildings saved and given a new life - I hope this will be true of this 2nd Avenue treasure.
