rooftops.  New York City just happens to enjoy an
embarrassment of riches, as well as some
characters and venues that are indeed unique,
majestic and at times downright comical.   
More to come.
This page is meant to be a grateful, loving tribute.

When the white brick  building next door decided to go red,  the process was mesmerizing.   
Noisy, inconvenient? Perhaps, but the result is stunning, and work was completed in less than a year.  Truly amazing!
