New York City ~ Architectural Voyeurism

Whenever I am in New York ( or any other city for that matter) I try to soak up every bit if culture and architectural detail I can find.  Living in the West in a city that is only a few years past 100 years old there is not much of anything here with any architectural merit.  So I absolutely love classic ornament and historic detailing.

Here are a few of the jewels I spotted on my trip a couple of weeks ago.

I LOVE that leafy vine snaking it's way up through the Greek key border... I can see that embroidered on a 2" ribbon braid trim... in the Jackie Von Tobel Trim Collection yet to come. ;-)

Great photographs, Jackie! Like you, I also enjoy the architecture of cities that I visit. You would love Charlestion, SC. Let me know if you are ever planning a visit here.

Jackie,

I wish we still did buildings like this today. They are art pieces to say the least.
