There I was snapping away with my Iphone using my Camerbag app and the magazine setting while on a walk to the Y for a swim (nothing better to keep one in shape). I caught the steps for Trinity Lutheran on Central Park West, then the doors and something of the rose window, lining up the picture with the edge of the building.
Just a block south is the Prasada, a great building which is enshrouded for repairs. I was able to snap one of the columns however.
A block further south and I caught the railing outside the Society for Ethical culture.
And then the corner of the Society at Central Park West and 63rd Street. I rather fancy this picture. The contrast of the massive stonework and the 1930's building across the street is interesting.
Finally: the doorway of the Y which has beautiful tilework. I have heard from one source that the tiles are Spanish, while another has told me that they are from the Moravian Tile Works in Pennsylvania. Perhaps a little more digging will resolve the matter.
