"we will probably be judged not by the monuments we build but by those we have destroyed"
This is an amazing location.. I feel it might look even more interesting in early morning light or late afternoon light, whichever offers the best opportunity. So many textures and interest here that you have found. Creeeeepy!!!
I just read that Building C collapsed due to the rainstorms we have been having in NYC. See today's Gothamist article.
There is a strange famiarity to these like something from my long, searched for past.
A lot of old memories must be locked in here. Even ghosts I am sure.
Thank goodness for your photos. A form of historic preservation.The question that comes to my mind is why haven't such fine and lovely townhouses been inhabited? The Empire style is lovely, and the homes should have been prized as homes, much as the brownstones are. They appear to have made a lovely and livable neighborhood.Has the neighborhood been so forbidding as to keep people away? If a supermarket can be built there, why not restored homes?
p.s. I'm writing this on the day that Wegman 's announced it will be building a supermarket on the site.Before that announcement, I did not know about Admiral's Row, and searched for info, found this blog / site.
