Below is the same view (from 51st Street) from November of 2008.

A great day for the Irish!

Happy St. Patrick's Day to all the Irish and Irish-loving people today near and far. "Erin Go Bragh" even though I am Polish, I do love the Irish and married one to prove it. St. Patrick's Cathedral is a beautiful sight to see, both inside and out, regardless of one's religion so don't miss it if you are in NYC. It really looks quite magnificent in this majestic photo. Here's a little mantra for today (to the tune of "lions and tigers and bears, oh my") but it is instead "Corn beef and cabbage and beer, oh boy!" Stay sober...Paddy O'Furniture

Vanderbilt Row

Looks like that photo was taken from the courtyard between the Vanderbilt "Double Mansion." That's the railing (and balcony) of William H. Vanderbilt's mansion in the foreground.

And you can see the relationship of the two neighbors 28 years later in this spectacular photo of the construction of Rockefeller Center.
