Happy 100th Birthday Woolworth Building!

Each painting measures 6 x 8 inches

The magnificent Woolworth Building turns 100 today. Quite a beauty and it wears its age well. Several years ago I took photographs and decided to take one photo and divide it into 3 fragments. Each small painting holds it's own, but makes for an interesting way to view some of the architectural details on a facade loaded with carvings.

Here's a photo taken in 2006
Long may this wonderful building stand tall and proud gracing the NYC skyline.
