101 Spring Street, New York

While researching a post on Donald Judd, I ran across an interesting article on the Design Observer site about the residence and studio he maintained in New York City, even after he had moved permanently to Marfa, Texas.

The article included an essay written by Judd in 1989 about the history of the building designed in 1870 by Nicholas Whyte. Not only is the essay a fascinating read, but the photographs by Elizabeth Felicalla are beautiful.

    1. I could live in a place like that with no problem. It may encompass five floors, but it has an elevator, so who cares?

    1. Wouldn't it be wonderful to have that much light?

    1. If ever a place had real "character," this one does.
