more details....

The first 2 images are of Delano and Aldrich's Knickerbocker Club at 2 East 62nd St., a building that strikes a delicate note in a neighborhood of imposing houses. D & A succeeded McKim Mead & White as "the" club architects of New York. This 1915 opus is them at their Georgian best. The ironwork here is quite different, albeit equally beautiful as that on neighboring houses. The next 2 shots are of the door to 15 East 62nd St. I like buildings like this; they've got heft. The last shot is of a bracket on the facade of 1 East 62nd St., now a coop containing particularly magnificent rooms.
