Streetscape details, Thompson Street

ironwork detail, tenement, 86 Thompson Street

Just one example of the many carefully crafted, often overlooked details of tenements in the South Village, here remarkably well preserved (above).  The design of the ironwork of this fire escape goes far beyond the functional necessity it serves.
