Many of us have been in New York but even if we hadn’t we would still be able to recognize some of the city’s icons. However, how much attention do you pay to details? Would you be able to identify all of these spots in New York? Some of these aren’t easy at all so you’ll have to stretch your memory for the answers.
And remember, “God is in the Details”- Mies van der Rohe

What a great idea for a post! Spectacular photos! 🙂
Thanks so much Rebecca 🙂
Love your posts! Creative and thoughtfully presented.
Mmmm; well I don’t think I guessed all of those! Were you in New York for Archtober? http://www.archtober.org/building-of-the-day
They weren’t easy at all! I wished I could go in October again, looks like there are so many things to visit. I went in summer which was pretty good actually 🙂
Great photos. Thanks for sharing. I only have an idea on the last one because of the apparent context and the waterfall in the far background.
If you get a chance I would love to see a post from you on Parkchester, Bronx. I spent my pre-teen summers there (late 1940’s) and am still amazed at the architecture and green areas.
Hello Waldo, thanks for your kind comments! I am sure the first one (Frank Lloyd Wright Guggenheim Museum) is familiar to you too 😉
Do you still live in New York? I would be glad to write about Parkchester, stay tunned.
I have never lived in NYC. My Aunt and Uncle moved into Parkchester when it first opened. He was the Yardmaster for NY Central Railroad in Grand Central Station. I have always lived in upstate NY. My uncle and aunt would have me come to Parkchester for summer vacation (sort of like a reverse Fresh Air Kid). They were childless and showed me a great time during the summers that I visited. I will remember the scenes of Parkchester until the day I leave this earth.
What a great time for a county kid. Visiting with all sorts of people with all sorts of different ideas, getting tours of the underground yards of Grand Central, swimming almost every day in the Castle Hill Swimming club, eating Chinese at the Toysun restaurant on Unionport Road.
