One of the first places we explored on my Photography Safari in late September was The Dakota building. It is one of the most famous buildings in the city but I had yet to take a view of it. It is one of the top 25 NY Buildings. It was quite a site in person and I wondered what took me so long to make a visit!! Here is some of it's glorious history:
it really is a very large and impressive building
against a blue sky it was just a gorgeous site to be seen
I did not dislike one thing about it at all
loved the entrance area
those are real lanterns with fire burning inside
don't wait as long as I did to view this wonderful piece of architecture
the area around the building is gorgeous as well...the Upper West Side is a great place to stroll and feel like a real New Yorker!!
in case you are wondering, here is a floor plan of a Dakota apartment.....cost is about 25 million...maybe if all the followers got together we could buy one and rotate weeks?? wouldn't that just be so grand!!!
