Two Beauties

I always smile when passing the Gilsey House on Broadway and 29th Street. This NYC Landmark, built in 1872, is a beautiful Victorian pile that sits like a grand old lady on grand old Broadway, a bit of the past in a bustling, every changing city. The Empire State Building, built around 50 years later, illustrates the huge change in the style of architecture being built, a hearkening of things to come. Two beautiful and memorable buildings.
