More architecture......this one is amazing!!!
I hope y'all aren't getting board of this stuff, bear with me for one more post I cant help it!! I got my head stuck in a rut been thinking about some new designs for tiles. This is another of my favorite buildings its across the street from Grand Central at 122 east 42nd st. Its the Chanin building the Terra-Cotta was fabricated by Atlantic Terra-Cotta Company. To give you a idea of the scale the Terra -Cotta frieze is eighteen feet high. I couldn't get back far enough to get the whole building in but the detail is amazing. I love the snakes at the bottom. The next time your in new you look up everyone will know your a tourist but who cares!
