Alwyn Court

I’ve been blogging for over eight years (crazy!) and this is the first time we shot in front on this architectural beauty (located on 58th & 7th). Furthermore, this is the first time I actually stopped to really admire it, rather than quickly walking by. That tends to happen, doesn’t it? Especially in our own cities, something I’m trying to be more mindful of.

Interestingly enough, the building was constructed when New Yorkers, some living in the city part time, began to shift from mansions to apartment living.

As far as my outfit goes, this trench has been one of my recent Zara scores. Paired with an all white outfit and black heels, perfect for this finicky weather we’ve been having.

    I love the white with the trench color. It looks so chic. NYC is full of so many architectural marvels I see something new and amazing every time I turn the corner – it’s part of why I love the city so much. I imagine living there must feel like that every day.

    I love this look and the building. The weather has been crazy, it’s like the East Coast decided to have June gloom too.

    I totally agree with you. Living in NY often makes me not as likely to visit some of the beautiful spots or those that capture tourists attention because I feel that it’s not “meant” for me to visit. However, by doing this we miss out on so much beauty of the city and NY has definitely a lot to offer in terms of architecture. This building is a beauty and you’ve inspired me to go shoot there this summer. –> and blogging for eight years?! Incredible, your passion for it hasn’t diminished at all
