One of my favorite parts about living in NYC is the endless exposure to inspiration. For me this comes in many forms, The history of NY, The Architecture, and being surrounded by art. One building that i have been obsessed with since before living in NY is the Ansonia Building. i first noticed the Ansonia on the movie Single White Female, with Bridget Fonda & Jennifer Jason Leigh. The building was built during the Beaux-Arts era from 1899-1904 and is the only building in NYC to resemble French Luxury Hotels. In its hayday it had a fountain in the entrance with live seals, and the largest indoor swimming pool. The building is located on 73rd and Broadway on NYC's Upper West Side, with 18 stories and spectacular views of NYC it is definitely one of NY's gem's. i have always wanted to live in this building and plan on someday doing so. i hope that you enjoy the pictures of its grand architecture.
