Favorite Building 3
Madeline and I spent a lot of time in The Whitney Museum of American Art last week. We saw the Calder show (but was more impressed with Calder Jewelry show at the Met). After the visit we had lunch with a bunch of architects and we all agreed that the Whitney staircase is a great NYC public place. The detail on the handrail is beautiful, inlaid brass in Teak...and the space where the bench is just enough room for a lunch break in the light-well. The Entrance "rocks' as they say, we loved walking into this little animal and crossing over the "art moat". Re-visit this gem when you are there.
