The birdmen of an Upper East Side building

June 21, 2010

Lots of buildings in the city are decorated with bird sculptures and reliefs.¬†But I think this the first time I’ve seen birdlike hybrids with very human-looking legs standing guard on an apartment house.

These four, plus another four on the other side, adorn the facade of a prewar building in the East 60s off Fifth Avenue.
