I always think it would be terrible to live in one of those places if you A) have asthma / emphysema, or B) if you just got out of a cab in front of your building and have to relieve your bladder really badly.Moot points aside, that is a gorgeous photo.
I had bladder surgery and had to walk up all seven flights with a catheter. NO fun!
My 6th floor walkup has the same banisters, but they covered up the beautiful floor tile years ago with something vinyl and hideous.Erica: you learn to find all the ground level bathrooms and use them before you have to deal with the stairs. As for asthma, you just go slow, rest between flights, and pay boatloads to get everything delivered.
Seven floors with a catheter. Gosh! I easily get vertigo, so I put on my motion sickness acupressure bracelets to view this fantastic photo without becoming dizzy and/or queasy.
Whatever I was going to say about 1869 has been eclipsed by the terrible catheter scenario.
Great shot and good exercise!
They knew all about perspective in 1869, but very little about elevators.
We would all be in great physical shape if we had to walk up and down seven flights. Great shot too!
If I lived there, I might be in better physical shape, but I'd be grouchy as hell. How often do you decide just to stay home because you know those steps are waiting? But it does make a beautiful photo and salute to the past. Why do I know the name "Tribeca" in the pic of a few days ago? Talk about unique.
Reminds me of old detective movies when they are chasing someone and see them way down on the stairs.
Very cinematic. Looks like fun to run down; not as much fun to climb up.
Great photo, great stairwell/stairway, but I wouldn't want to walk it every day.
You do not live on the 7th floor. Do you??!!!??!That would be insane. I thought it was against the law not to have an elevator in buildings over 6 stories!!(half kidding!)
Just amazing photo, Ken Mac!
The bicycle looks like its floating in the middle of the stair well....
