Photo by myself at 75th Street and Park Avenue on the Upper East Side.
The photo above was not modified, beyond a little tweaking with the contrast. Two townhouses located side-by-side were built by the same contractor at the same time.
One building was built with terra cotta bricks, the other with grey bricks. The builder used Roman bricks, which are longer and skinnier than the ones commonly used today.
Happy Monday, everyone!
The sun finally, finally peeked out on Sunday, starting to melt all our snow. Maybe the groundhogs Punxsutawney Phil and Staten Island Chuck will be right in Spring coming early this year?
