Most of this neighborhood dates to the late 1800s or early 1900s. To me, it has a strong Gotham
vibe, which was perfectly complemented by the strange misty light this particular evening. At lower-right is Church of the Ascension; it appears an event is taking place in the alley behind it. The ornate building at upper-center-left is P.S. 165, the first ‘H-plan’ school designed by architect C. B. J. Snyder
. The hulking mass at distant-far-right is the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine
with Archangel Gabriel
jutting up from the roof.
