Downtown locals

The Financial District is one of our favourite neighbourhoods in the city. Walking down the narrow streets we can still see the fantastic buildings from the 20's and 30's and even before, like the Delmonico's restaurant or some other examples of the 1900's still around.

The city is always changing though, and some newcomers are joining the area. William Beaver House (the most ambitious project of Andre Balazs in New York) is one of them. We walked by today, and it seems is almost finished.

There are many apartment conversions in the area, so we are happy to see that the neighbourhood is becoming residential once again. Like it was a long time ago, at the very beginning.


  1. Great photographs! Is that the Empire State building? It certainly looks like it

  2. Dear Anonymous, it is not the Empire State Building.It is 70 Pine St also known as AIG Building.

  3. New York architecture is gorgeous. I love the yellow building.

    Im definitely following your blog. Your architecture photos will help inspire my fashion designs.

  4. Dear somedaynewyorker, thanks for you comment!
    New York is the biggest inspiration of all.
