Naked women vs. mythic sea creatures

From the facade of a pre-war apartment building in Sheridan Square in the West Village.

They’re so unique and dynamic. Must be a story behind why the architect had them put up.

    So funny – I happened to be down in the village today, and passed by this building, and I scratched my head wondering why I’d seen these bas reliefs before. Then I remembered seeing them here.

    It’s amazing the things you see in this city just by looking up.

    I know; ever since I saw these, I’ve been noticing some even stranger examples of building art all over the city. But that’s for a later post.
