Another Old and New


Here's another example of older and newer architecture in New York. A visitor to this blog had suggested once that I take a photo featuring these two buildings. I found this one that I had from a few months back. I'm afraid I don't know the buildings. I like the older one much better!

Tres belle photo, j'adore ce melange (tres new yorkais) de l'ancien et du moderne. Bravo, une vraie carte postale. Devant (je mettrais ma main a couper) c'est le celebre hotel "The Sherry Netherland Hotel", par-contre je connais le building derrière, mais je ne me rappelle plus, cela va me revenir ;o) Je reviens dés que j'ai trouvé ;o)


Very beautiful photograph, I adore this mixture (very new yorkais) of old and the modern one. Cheer, a true postcard. In front of (I would put my hand has to cross) it is celebrates it hotel “The Sherry Netherland Hotel”, by-against I know the building behind, but I do not remember any more, that will return to me ;O) I return dice which I found ;O)

Enfin, je cherchais, voila c'est derrière je pense que c'est le "THE GENERAL MOTORS BUILDING"

Lastly, I sought, veiled it is behind I think that it is “GENERAL THE MOTORS BUILDING”

Interesting contrast. Like you, I prefer the old.

Boys how beautiful! The eyes go from a building to the other in a spectacular composition. Bellissima!

Yes, the older building has more character, and it really stands out against the backdrop of the more modern building. I love these kind of shots!

Classic and modern architecture in the same photo? Nice contrast!

That is a really cool shot!
I like the old building better, too!
Everything has to be so big nowadays!

Lori said...

Hi all, thanks for your visits today!

Merci Olivier pour trouver les noms de ces immeubles. J’ai pensé que tu connaîtrais les noms! (Thanks Olivier for finding the names of those buildings. I thought you would know them!)

I love the color on the one building against the the building in the background. Wonderful shot.

I luv the shot!
Being an Architect, I can relate it...there are many isuees involved in setting up modern architecture in old city fabric....Am always fascinated by NYC urban design...This image is more than a snap!

Olivier correctly identified both buildings, the Sherry Netherland (art deco, circa 1927) and the General Motors tower (international style, 1968).

How did he do it? He's a genius!
