The sunny side of East 110th Street

When you see letters carved into the top of a tenement building, they usually spell out the name of the guy who developed or owned it. Or it’ll just give the year the building was completed.

But then there’s Sunny Side, spotted on a tenement the south side of 110th Street around Second Avenue:

I guess the owner wanted to do whatever he could to make his apartments seem more desirable than the tenements across the street?

    my tenement/”french flats”, built 1885, also have a name at the top, though not so evocative.

    What a great name for a building and I love the half and half paint job. I’ve started to take photos of these that I see around my city – often they’re one side that’s super renovated and the other side decidedly not. Other times it just looks like it’s two neighbors who couldn’t come to terms. Absolutely love your blog by the way.
