A few signs of spring have appeared on the High Line. Cherries just starting; and Crocci and Witch Hazel are in full swing. It was amusing to watch the Mockingbirds hopping around a foot away from all the people walking by. A lady waved her cane at them and they didn’t even blink.
The Ansonia, designed by noted architect Paul Duboy, opened in 1904 as a luxury hotel stretching along Broadway between 73rd and 74th streets. By the 1970s it was converted into rental apartments and it is now a designated Landmark on the Upper West Side.
