    One of my favorite buildings in New York; I used to walk by it often. The built environment in that particular neighbourhood is particularly handsome. There are many fine solid buildings mid-19th-C up and down Lafayette Street going north from there, as well as the NoHo Star at Bleecker & Lafayette, a lovely place for a good bite.
