Ever changing

Near our flat is a lovely ornate building I'm guessing to be 100 - 120 years old, all scrolley and pillared and it's a Home Depot. 

These were banks. 

Now one with the green dome is a CVS and the other with the eagle guarding the door is a men's spa.


That's right. The old Port Authority building is now Google, with a Banana Republic at the retail level. And it's a very big building. 

There is always a crowd near the Apple store, since it's so close to Central Park. In the glass cube is the elevator and thru the cube is the former Plaza Hotel, now condos, where Mark stays once back in his radio days. 

And to think I was first in NYC when the Bowery was...the Bowery.
