Great site … I’ve enjoyed browsing back through this spring’s postings (and will return for more).
In response to your May 23 posting about the LO telephone exchange — it’s probably Longacre (mid-Manhattan) — another possibility is Lorraine (Inwood).
Thanks for the nice words! I think you’re right about Longacre.
thanks for calling attention to thids longlost new york painting. think it’s viewed by folks in tasmania who then think gowanus bay is still so printine?
The Gowanus, not pristine? Surely you jest!
How can that be the Gowanus? It isn’t lavender!
