After All These Years

…of living in New York City, it’s still possible for me to stumble upon a sight that has the power to surprise and delight.  On a recent visit downtown, I came upon 40 Bond Street, a 5-year-old condominium building.

I loved that in this old neighborhood the modernity of the design came as a delightful revelation rather than a jarring assault of the senses.  It sort of fits in while standing out.

Isn’t that what all of us are attempting?

    1. That was my thought exactly when I stumbled upon this! I was also relieved to find out it hasn’t been there forever, so it’s not like I’ve not been paying attention…well, maybe a little bit…lol xoxoM

  1. An interesting set of images!
    Thanks for coming to visit my blog and liking my post!
    I missed your blog too during my months of disappearance… glad to visit your blog more often 🙂

    1. Oh, good, I’m not the only one who thinks of English ivy as a weed! This building was a great find. I’m looking forward to checking out the theater productions, too! xoxoM

  2. I wrote a blog/article about this building! I’ve never seen it in person but I did it for a Manhattan exec. And yes, that is what we are all trying to do, M. So perfectly said. I’m not sure I’ve found just the right spot yet. ;).

    1. I think our spots keep moving, Brigitte, as they should. It’s really more of a dance than a still life! I liked the building a lot, especially for its unexpectedness! Must have been fun to write about it, and I hope you get to see it sometime. It’s worth the trip! 😉 xoxoM
