The magic of Grand Central Terminal in New York City and the neighborhoods around are inspiring. During the pandemic of 2020 the neighborhood has become more quiet and cleaner. I took a walk while having the best coffee from Latin America the other day and decided to take some pictures.

Grand Central Terminal is one of New York’s greatest landmarks and contains perhaps the city’s finest civic space. However, over time it has become a victim of its own success. A building designed to be used by 75,000 people per day now routinely handles ten times that number with up to a million on peak days.

Red Hook Brooklyn Viewer by the East River

Red Hook Brooklyn was founded in 1836 by Dutch colonists. This is why we can notice so many Holland style warehouse buildings all around Red Hook Brooklyn. I went to a bike ride and sat by the river while having my favorite Latin America coffee. I still drink hot black coffee during any hot summer day in NYC. By the 1920s, they made Red Hook the busiest freight port in the world, but this ended in the 1960s with the creation of shipping containers. Then by the 1930s Red Hook became one of the poorest neighborhoods in New York and…

NYC Moments delivery bike man

NYC seems empty, but still beautiful. Many people walk keeping their distance. Delivery guys on bikes work hard to deliver food directly from local markets in NYC. While walking in New York City Chelsea and having a great cup of Latin America coffee I decided to document the street life during the pandemic of 2020. Chelsea is one of the most vibrant and dynamic neighborhoods in New York City, but like everywhere else, it was deeply impacted by the pandemic. Despite the challenges, however, there were still many moments of beauty and resilience in the neighborhood during this difficult time.…

NYC Architecture Wall Art

New York City is a center for inspiration for most designers and architects around the world. Come visit the historic neighborhood of Lower East Side. Original architecture LES NYC for inspiration is below.

As someone who has always been fascinated by the history and architecture of New York City, I find the original buildings and structures in the Lower East Side to be particularly inspiring.

The Lower East Side is home to some of the oldest buildings in New York City, many of which have been preserved or restored to their original glory. These structures offer a window into the city’s past, revealing the architectural styles and building techniques of generations gone by. From the ornate facades of the tenement buildings to the stately brick warehouses, these buildings tell a story of the city’s growth and development over time.

One of the things I love most about the Lower East Side’s original architecture is the way it reflects the diverse cultures and styles that have influenced the neighborhood over the years. From the ornate terra cotta facades of the early 20th century Jewish buildings to the sleek Art Deco designs of the 1930s, the Lower East Side’s architecture is a testament to the many influences that have shaped the neighborhood’s identity.

Another reason I find the Lower East Side’s original architecture so inspiring is the incredible attention to detail and craftsmanship that went into creating these structures. From the intricate masonry work on the facades to the ornate ironwork on the fire escapes, these buildings are a testament to the skill and dedication of the architects, builders, and craftsmen of the past.

Finally, the original architecture of the Lower East Side is a reminder of the importance of preserving our city’s heritage and history. As New York City continues to grow and change, it’s crucial that we take steps to protect the buildings and structures that have shaped our past and continue to define our present. These buildings serve as a tangible link to our shared history, and inspire me to advocate for their preservation and protection.

In conclusion, the original architecture LES NYC is a constant source of inspiration for me. It offers a glimpse into the city’s past, showcases a unique blend of cultures and styles, highlights the craftsmanship and attention to detail of the past, and serves as a reminder of the importance of preservation. As I wander the streets of the neighborhood, I can’t help but feel a sense of wonder and appreciation for the buildings and structures that have stood the test of time, and I look forward to seeing how they continue to shape the city’s future.

Grab a cup of coffee, walk around, and see these unique buildings, some built in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Contact me if you would like more information or if you are interested in collaborating.
