Et Cetera: Publick and Privat Curiosities Harlem’s Painted Lady: 65 East 125th Street «

This was a featured blog post on WordPress many days ago, but I just saw it only a couple of days ago. At any rate, I find this blog post very enlightening. What a wonderful idea to take it upon yourself to chronicle the life of an areas environment. This must take allot of fortitude to continue to do ‘caue we are talking about years, even decades of history being captured.

I am very into spacial environments and how they are designed and how they end up working. Its the reason why I went into Architecture many many years ago. What I am glad to see is that many other people find it interesting too. Plenty of people commented on the work being done here.

This blog post has 33 comments and all of them are insightful and help to create a place where you are safe to think and write what YOU think. I think this is someplace you should take a look at… again.

The most interesting comment:

    June 8th, 2007 at 6:01 pm As a native New Yorker exiled in Florida, it’s interesting, but sad, to have the deterioration documented. On a recent trip back to my old neighborhood, the decline was similar, but to my amazement there was one street – for at least a four block stretch- that had remained the same since the 60’s. I was amazed and curious. What imunity did those four blocks have that shielded them from the decay all around them? It would be interesting to find out.
