Hitting a Brick Wall




This building looks old but I got the feeling that there are some really cool apartments inside. Do you see the stick puppet in the window?

This is the top of an old abandoned warehouse near the harbor

I don't remember what it's used for but this old house is nestled between the skyscrapers. I love staircase, and I would love to take a look inside someday. I knew there where lots of brick buildings around here, but I didn't realize how many. Going through my photos it amazes me how many brick buildings there are.

I think I'll wrap up the brick series for now with these Philadelphia bricks.

  3. After ten minutes, I realized that I was looking in the wrong windows for the stick puppet! I feel like a peeping tom!

  4. I love the bottom one, it's in that glorious pretentious grand style; someone wanted to make a statement.

  11. I really liked the "wavy windows" in the top photo and the house in the midst of all the tall buildings-beautiful! How refreshing to see such a handsome building sharing space with all the metal and glass!

  17. I accidentally hit my head on the brick wall, and it's ouchhhh!

    Fantastic pictures and the staircase looks classic. Somebody must be a relative to Pinocchio to hang the puppet there, or is it Jim something of the Muppet Show?
