In my early morning wanderings around Greenwhich Village last december, I stumbled upon this beautiful old building. The bicycle and the sign made the shot, and an antiquated shot post-processing imposed itself.

Only later did I discover that the building has peculiarities in design (it has three sides and borders three streets, but one side borders two streets and the other two sides border the same street) and that Edgar Allan Poe was treated there for a bad cold in 1837.
