"LOOK UP!" Central Park Tip by TexasDave
Central Park, New York City: 61 reviews and 72 photos
Favorite thing: Especially in the area around Central Park, take some time to look at the top floor, or penthouses, of the apartment buildings. Many are quite ornate and there is a lot of architecture to admire up there. Of course, the trick is to do so discretely, so as not to look like a country bumpkin who just fell off the turnip truck!
The penthouse I've posted as an example is right across the street from Trump Tower, 5th Ave, South of Central Park.
By the same token, sometimes you an see amazing artistry where you least expect it. The second photo is of an apartment building on the Lower East Side. Look at all the detail that went into the building's facade. They just don't make them like that anymore!
