Photo by myself from 26th Street and 11th Avenue, in Chelsea.
The far west side in the mid-20's is not as dense as you'd think.
This is the view looking northeast from Mark's office at 26th Street and 11th Avenue, in the far west reaches of Chelsea. The building steps back a bit and there is room for a long balcony. What results is an expansive view.
The Empire State Building is ahead, at 35th Street and 5th Avenue. Behind me on the left is the Hudson River.
Because of the recently constructed public park nearby, the High Line, this area is undergoing some change. This neighborhood was rarely trafficked not long ago.
Now the sidewalks are actually populated. Old warehouses have been converted into offices and gallery spaces. In a bit of time, the entire neighborhood will change.
