New York City is full of beautiful and interesting architectural gems. There is an abundance of friezes, sculptures, gargoyles, columns, corbels, balustrades, colonnades, festoons, rosettes, etc., all around the city. All you have to do to see them is to look up, as very often they are high in the sky.
I love to wander through different neighborhoods in the city to record them with my camera lens, and I thought that I would show you some of my favorite images today in photo mosaic form.
All the photo mosaics will enlarge if you click on them once, and then again when they open on a new page. Use your browser's back arrow to return to the blog post. Most of the images in the collection above were seen on buildings and in gardens in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan.
This photo mosaic shows four ornate buildings in Lower Manhattan.
This collection was taken in Midtown Manhattan. The 18 foot high painted enamel medallions that you see in the middle of this mosaic are on the wall of Radio City Music Hall. They were designed by Hildreth Meiere and placed on the building in 1932. From the top down they represent Drama, Song and Dance.
This collection is from the very fascinating Flatiron District in Manhattan, in an area surrounding Madison Square Park.
Are you curious to know who that man is standing on top of the Flatiron Building? Come back Wednesday and I'll tell you about him, and 26 others like him.
I'm linking this post to "Mosaic Monday" on Mary's blog Little Red House. Please visit Mary's blog today to see the links of all the blogs participating this week with their wonderful photo mosaics!
