An Architectural Timeline

I'm sitting on my sofa next to my window enjoying the sunshine and was struck by the cool view outside of my window. I love how perfectly the buildings are lined up and how they -- in order -- show the progress of construction in New York City.

Right out my window is a little pre-war building, then across the street there's the brick office of the Salvation Army, then a big factory that looks like it's from the mid 1900s, then two giant glass high rise apartment buildings in the distance.

Love the great water towers on the older buildings, too. Just thought I'd share.
