14th & Broadway Avenue

Here is another photo of a building with amazing architectural details. This building on the northwest corner of 14th Street and Union Square West housed a Diesel clothing store on the first floor and some offices on the upper floors.

So how was your weekend?

Fabulous photos as ever!
The Flat Iron Building was especially cool.
Have a good week.

WOW lots of detail on that building!
Had a great weekend... saturday I was on the beach in the morning, Scottish Dancing in the afternoon, then theatre in the evening, and spent most of Sunday in St Augustine (see my blog post), yes, I'm still in Florida, trying to stock up on enough sunshine to carry me through another cold Candian winter!

I love photographing building details. Paris is a true heaven for that. My mom came for a visit this weekend. It was intensive, a climb up to the Eiffel Tower for example, but truly magical.

As a blogger I guess we learn to look for details, including on house facades. Amazing what you can find! (But, watch your step!)

What is a diesel clothing store. Do they make and sell clothes worn by people who work on disels? Sounds too odd to be true. Must be the name of the store like Sears.

Ooh Abe has been laughing. I too wonder about Diesel clothing store. Maybe clothing worn by people PUMPING diesel fuel??? WEll I love the all white facade. How do they keep it that way in NYC Ming? Looks like a giant wedding cake to me.

Abe & Virginia -- Diesel is a clothing brand like GAP and Levi's. :-)

As for keeping it so white, I assume it's paint. ;-p

Your comments about Diesel make me laugh! Abe and Virginia don't have children under 20!
There is ABC Carpet not very far just a few steps higher, am'i right?
And my weekend is not finished yet: 11th November is a day off in France. What about yours, Ming?

Alice, I had a good weekend. I had dinner with some friends on Saturday evening and then slept in on Sunday when it got really cold.

That is lovely, they don't make them like this anymore.

My weekend was good although the weather wasn't :(

Virginia said...

OK , Diesel is a brand and once again I am out of it. I can only keep up with so much "current" stuff. Alice can help me when we are in Paris together....not long now!!! Ming, you can still come with us! :)

What a building, Ming. Stunning - love the way you've taken the photo. I also adore Diesel - there's one in Monaco but I found a great one in TriBeCa in NYC - with amazing displays of art - I wanted to photograph a hanging art work but wasn't allowed to use a camera. Maybe this is a shop, I don't remember the address, just it was in TriBeCa or perhaps the Village, come to think ofit.
