Repetition is beauty

Perfect Arches

We rounded a corner near Greenwich Avenue and stumbled on this beauty. The repetition of a theme is a necessity in building buildings – it’s aesthetically pleasing to see the same perfect arch repeated around a building, broken up every other level with another set of repetitions, like a well-used patio or even the zig-zag of a fire escape.

Next-level awesomeness achieved when the building’s denizens, whether a deliberate maneuver or accident of fate, match up to provide additional continuity, a riff off the common theme.

The green and red the planters provide are a perfect example of next-level-ness, in York Restoration Corporation’s eyes. We were struck with the duality of simplicity: beautiful <em>and</em> easy aren’t always a cinch to pull off in apartment living.

It’s a cute reminder that a little effort can so often go a long way.
