Back to NYC. Passed this many times until it dawned on me that it was actually the number of the building, 9 West 57th St. Sometimes if takes me a while. Took this a few Christmases ago. “The Red 9” by graphic artist Ivan Chermayeff sits outside the Solow Building which has a slight curve to its facade. I kind of love the unexpected shape but when it was built there were complaints that it reflected the less appealing sides of the older buildings nearby. So this was commissioned to distract pedestrians...(it’s where the shoe store 9 West got its name). #newyork #newyorkcity #manhattan #thered9 #sculpture #publicart #ivanchermayeff #solowbuilding #americanarchitecture #curvedfacade #mirrored #pedestrians #christmasinnewyork #westside #urbanlandscape #jonscottblanthorn

Inception. * W.R. #GraceBuilding Every lunch I walk by this beauty and today I finally decided to take some pictures. The tricky angle of the concave slopes of the facade reminded me #InceptionMovie where city was folding in front of Leonardo Dicaprio eyes. Some interesting facts about Grace Building: - It was built for Grace Chemical company by Russian Jewish architect Gordon Bunshaft in 1974. - It looks very similar to another Bunshaft creation on 57th Street: #SolowBuilding . I always suspected that buildings were related, but today I have a proof. I learned that the architect used rejected Solow Building plans for the Grace. - White travertine is used in building plaza, facades and sidewalks. Travertine creates very nice contrast with black windows. Gordon also used travertine for his personal home that as far as I understood was ruined by Martha Stewart 🙄 . . #42street #gracebuilding #grandcentral #grandcentralstation #chryslerbuilding #metlifebuilding #nyc #stonejungle #grandcentralterminal . #newyork #ig_nyc #newyorkcity #manhattan #lunchwalk #architecture #icapture_nyc #ilovenyc #travelnyc #nycprimeshot #what_i_saw_in_nyc #nycstreets

This time last week, a flying visit to NYC! #nyc #newyork #holidays #memories #I ❤️NY #nycityworld #nycity #manhatten
This slick sloping facade has been turning heads since 1974, and it houses now some of the most expensive office space in the city. Located at 9 West 57th St, most of its tenants are hedge funds, and, at the higher floors, they enjoy unobstructed views of Central Park and Midtown. It was a little hard to shoot because I either would get too close and couldn’t get the whole building in frame, or I would get too far and the adjacent buildings would partially hide it. Final position was somewhat precarious crouched down way too close to a parked car with the driver inside, eyeing me suspiciously... . . #solowbuilding #nyc #blackandwhite

Rain and Picasso’s “Mythic Bull” outside the Solow Building, 58th Street side. Designed by Gordon Bunshaft and using the rejected design for the Grace Building on 43rd, the Solow features that signature slow concave down to the ground. Like molasses settling. Or a bell-bottom. It’s more beautiful than the Grace, I think, though it was controversial at the time. The slope was a way to get past the city’s complex rules on set-backs and sky exposure. Sheldon Solow’s multi-million dollar art collection is viewable through the windows on the 57th Street side but the public aren’t allowed in. Bacon, Matisse, Kirchner, Kline and many more. The 58th Street side has beautiful brass planters, usually ivy-covered but in Spring, tulips or daffodils suddenly appear standing upright and in juxtaposition to the planters’ gorgeous curves. The original site had brownstones that were demolished to make way for the skyscraper. It seems crazy now to think of brownstones on 57th. #picasso #nyc #newyorkcity #mythicbull #solowbuilding #58thstreet #publicart

The Solow building in New York was built in 1974 and designed by Gordon Bunshaft. Notice the concave vertical slope! Btw, one of the most expensive rental fees in New York… #skyscraper #gordonbunshaft #skidmoreowingsmerrill #architecture #office #NewYork #nyc #nycphotography #50floors #solow #solowbuilding

Chef Franck Deletrain deftly upgrades dishes from the brasserie repertoire, offering sophisticated French cuisine amidst original artwork by Léger, Matisse and others favored by the Louvre. Guests enter by way of a grand, sweeping, spiral staircase and dine on white tablecloths in plush dining rooms. Brasserie 8 ½ offers an enticing, modern slice of la belle époque and has a great happy hour and prix fix dinner menue. This restaurant was showcased on Sex and the City. Brasserie 8 1/2 is located in the Solow Building, - 9 West 57th Street, is a Manhattan skyscraper built in 1974 and designed by Gordon Bunshaft of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill. In 1971, Avon Products rented 21 floors, soon increased to 25 floors. The building was shortly being referred to as "the Avon building" (a title that persists and can still cause confusion). #brasserie #brasserie81 /2 #fifthavenue #57thstreet #cheffranckdletrain #frenchcuisine #louvre #sexandthecity #spiralstaircase #solowbuilding #avonbuilding #gordonbunshaftofskidmoreowingsandmerrill #warburgrealty #warburg #prixfix #happyhour #skidmoreowingsandmerrill #leger #matisse #louvre #nyc #1970sstyle #manhattan #restaurantlife #finedining #classicspot #nyc2018 #57thstreet #brasserie812 #redcarpet #midtownwest #midtown #brasserie
