Tongues and Flames
This was taken on a walk to the Flatiron Building. I was just getting dark and the facade lit up like fire!
The Gershwin Hotel at 7 East 27th Street between Fifth and Madison Avenues in the NoMad neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City was built in 1903-05, and designed by William H. Birkmire in Beaux Arts style. The building, which has 12 stories and a penthouse, was originally intended to be an apartment building, but its function was changed before the building was completed. It was at first called the Brotzell Hotel, and later was part of the Latham Hotel. The Gershwin, named after composer George Gershwin, features contemporary artworks in its public areas, including Finnish artist Stefan Lindfors’ “Tongues and Flames” on the hotel’s facade. It is located within the Madison Square North Historic District
