The Bailey House

Got a chance to check out the James Bailey House up on St. Nicholas Place. Here's some of the amazing details of this Harlem Gem!

The bronze tiffany placard.

Some of the most amazing stained glass.

Some more amazing wood work.

Original Etched Glass.

Some from the upper floors,

Original marble bath!

The Eastern view.

Yours for only $6.5 million...needs probably another $1 million in renovations (at least).

Drive Out of Town

I apologize if my posts are a bit delayed. I've been spending alot of time on Origin of Species, my urban wildlife blog. I had a chance to get out of the City for a bit...Here's a sequence from Harlem to nearby Dutchess County.

All around one can see the high-water mark of Harlem Culture. Is it in the past,

the present,

or the future?

West Side Highway...

Washington Heights...

watchin' the heights.

The Mole People still representing.
