|A beautiful day outside. After having
brunch with friends, my husband and I went for a long walk along Broadway, from Upper West
side to the 60's.. On our way home, we noticed a big advertising image on the left
side of a building near Lincoln Center facing the main street of Broadway. The right
side of the image reflects a fading effect with large blue letters blending with yellow and pinkish background.
I've walked around the same block from time to time, but I did not actually noticed
the striking Ad until today. Must have been there since the 1920's. A
recently demolished building had hidden it from the public's eye for sometime and then
reemerged. The large image was just interesting, so we took a snapshot of
it. I thought it was a good reminder of the old New York. It will be there for
sometime until a new construction takes place.
Perhaps, as I walk other distances other
days, more traces of the past will catch my sight :-)
