TRINITY BUILDING: NEW YORK CITY

One of the greatest things about New York is it's architecture. This is not a revelation to anyone who has visited. However, I continue to be surprised where seemingly-mundane activities (like a doctor's appointment on a Friday morning) will take me. The photo below was taken in the lobby of the Trinity Building at 111 Broadway in Manhattan.

The gilded coffered ceilings and marble-lined hallway create a true elegance of the neo-gothic style. This building, along with its sister at 115 Broadway, were built in the early 20th century to mimic the neighboring Trinity Church. All are NYPLC Landmarked buildings. 

See the rendering below of the skyscrapers next to the church (look for the tiny brown steeple!)

Down at the bottom is a shot of the gothic-style elevators. Look at all the detailing! I'm curious if each elevator has a slightly different design?

At my next visit, I'll document more of the detailing.
