I’ve just returned from one of my absolute favorite places, New York City. As usual, I brought back with me a new “I heart NY” shirt (this time in turquoise), a Metro Card with money left on it (one more reason to go back), a few extra pounds (darn you Minetta Black Label burger!), wonderful memories, and about a thousand new photos.

While I still have a ton of editing to do, I wanted to share an image of my favorite building in the Big Apple, the majestic Chrysler Building.

Known as Detroit’s largest art object, the Fisher Building opened in September of 1928. The Art Deco masterpiece was designed by Albert Kahn and houses a three story lobby with hand-painted barrel vaulted ceilings, elaborate mosaics, and rows of
intricate and stunning chandeliers.

Guardian Building, Detroit, Michigan

Welcome to the Guardian Building, a gem of a skyscraper built in the late 1920s that is stunning no matter how many times you’ve seen it.

I’ve always been captivated by the charm of Art Deco and the era when it flourished, so I consider myself lucky to have places like this nearby.
