The Last House

85th Street, Manhattan, New York City

Houses and apartments on a street in Manhattan, New York City

"A house divided against itself cannot stand." Abraham Lincoln
Some say a lot of the houses or apartment buildings look similar in New York City. I disagree wholeheartedly. Maybe those who are always in a hurry and just walk past these architectural structures without a short glimpse will disagree.

As I said in a previous post, I just love the New York City color scheme. For some it might be too dark and dull but for me it's spectacular especially on a cloudy/rainy day. Each building I see I try to see something unique in it and that does not only make me appreciate it more, but it also helps me to remember the buildings. 

This particular street in the picture is 85th Street between Central Park and Columbus Avenue. It's where I spend most of my time and it's also the street my muse lives on. So yes, this is not a random street picture, it's a street that has a lot of significant importance to me.

This photograph was captured on my iPhone using the Hipstamatic app. Some minor editing was done in PS CS4. Settings for Hipstamatic were BlacKeys B&W/Lucifer IV

  1. Wonderful shot. I don't know much of any city, least of all New York, I am from a small city on the west coast was raised in a small rural town even further west on the coast of Oregon. I find the old architecture so inspiring and interesting. here's my link.
