This is the west end of 72nd Street. I liked the contrast of old and new. The place on the right is still under construction. I don't know, but I assume the place on the left is no younger than 1920s, possibly turn of the 19th century. I used to walk a pair of boxers in a building three doors down from here, and the interior was amazing. I don't know if it is Art Deco, Art Noveau, or some other style I'm unfamiliar with, but perhaps that gives you an idea of what the inside looks like. They still had the old metal elevator, complete with full time operator.
