New York Architecture Images- 51 West 10th St. Studios

Imagine this one . . .Wyndcliffe is an abandoned mansion in the town of Rhinebeck, New York. The scale of this place is absolutely enormous, and its style seems different from any of the other Hudson River estates. It inspired the phrase "keeping up with the Joneses" and is featured on the cover of a book on American ruins.

Chimborazo - because the mountain lies on the equatorial bulge, the summit is the furthest point away from the center of the earth. I wonder if Frederic Church knew this when he traveled there and sketched it in the 1850s?

The Tenth Street Studio Building, constructed in New York City in 1857, was the first modern facility designed solely to serve the needs of artists. It became the center of the New York art world for the remainder of the nineteenth century. The building helped to make Greenwich Village central to the arts in NYC. Winslow Homer and many artists of the Hudson River School, including Frederic Church, Lockwood de Forest and Albert Bierstadt, had studios there.
