A close-up look down Cortlandt Street in 1908
“Cortlandt Street, New York, showing the Singer Building,” reads the caption of this postcard. What a time capsule we’re looking at from what appears to be West Street. Not only is there no more Singer Building (brand new in 1908, demolished in 1968), but the small-scale walkups on the right were obliterated to make way […]

Castillos del Renacimiento en Francia
Debido a su cercanía geográfica, y, sobre todo, a los intereses económicos y estratégicos, la influencia italiana se dejó sentir pronto en Francia. Con el rey Francisco I (1494-1547), gran mecenas y revitalizador del arte, se produjo la introducción definitiva de las corrientes renacentistas en el país. Era tal su aprecio por las artistas, que […]

Step into the remains of a Gilded Age hotel
“Every window in the Holland House, at Fifth Avenue and 30th Street, was glowing with light last night when the doors were opened to hundreds of visitors bidden to see the beauties of the new hostelry,” wrote the New York Times in a gushing review of the newest kid on a luxury block on December […]

The Greatly Augmented Icosidodecahedron, and Its Dual
If a central polyhedron’s pentagonal and triangular faces are augmented by great dodecahedra and icosahedra, I refer to it as a “greatly augmented” polyhedron. Here, this has been done with an icosidodecahedron. The same figure appears below, but in “rainbow color” mode. In the next image, “color by face type,” based on symmetry, was used. […]

The shadowy corners of a city street in 1930
“Corner Shadows,” by printmaker Martin Lewis, depicts a Depression-era city of lamp light, back streets, and regular New Yorkers absorbed in their own thoughts, even in a crowd. It’s not clear what corner of the city we’re on, but the drugstore across the way hints that it’s ordinary and nondescript, a working class neighborhood perhaps. […]
