INSPIRATION IN THE DETAILS
I'm a big fan of repeat patterns, highly decorative patterns, and well let's just say patterns in general. Anyone who takes the time to look up in this city will know that much of the architecture here offers some of the most amazing detailed work of anywhere in this country. Even after being here for 11 years, I'm still spotting things and going to parts of Manhattan that I've never been to before. I discovered this pattern work on the base of the 59th Street , (Queensboro), Bridge yesterday while on a little outing. I'm only showing you the detail because, well, I love patterns, but the actual piece had to be a good 20 feet tall. What can I say, it just caught my eye.
