Great Perspectives. Broome Street.

I like looking down this stretch of Broome Street in Soho, mostly because of the towering baroque skyscraper (487 Broadway) that you see in the back there. Built in 1895, it was a cutting-edge building known as the Silk Exchange due to the high number of powerful silk merchants that worked there.Broome Street, Soho, 487 BroadwayNot long after in 1899, it was purchased by “The Western Millionaire” James B. Haggin, a duderancher who made himself big money developing Western mines and breeding horses. Haggin paid $850,000 for the whole building, and henceforth it became known as the Haggin Building. Here’s an old school photo taken from not long after its construction…Amazingly, not much has changed! 487 Broadway, 1899, vintage, soho

Great Perspectives. Broadway and 13th.

After almost 20 years of calling New York my home, the view north over Union Square from Broadway and 11,th, 12th, 13th….still gives me those fresh off the turnip truck goose pimples.

On the Go. Manhattan Bridge by Bike.

I needed to get from Park Slope to the East Village quickly for my open houses today, so Greg suggested I try the Manhattan Bridge on my bike. It was a great ride: 6,855 feet of smooth bridge, with no cars to contend with! It was door to door in just under a half hour, and there’s also plenty of local color to enjoy along the way, as always.
