A Short Tour of East 35th Street Curiosities

7 July, 2015

The three avenue stretch of East 35th Street between 3rd and Madison Avenues is home to some interesting typography, facades and ornaments.  The three photographs below are just a few of the Author’s observations on a brisk walk to and from various engagements.

May this building never be torn down for a high-rise apartment building.

    I think Anguish & Mischief are my favorites.

    Dear Charlotte Lancaster,

    I am quite charmed by them too! They were in the entryway to an apartment building. Seems an odd, but interesting, choice of adornment.

    Do you see these walking from the ferry to work?

    Dadork — it is indeed! It’s a rather pleasant walk until you get past Park Avenue.
