These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

If we think we're any better

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

What I see, is what you get.

One more gargoyle, and a shot of the building.

I did not take the photo of the building-- I did take the detail shot
of the gargoyle. The building shot comes straight from my high school
yearbook.

I like the gargoyles. They have a rugged simplicity and tremendous energy about them. Very cool building, could be straight out of Oxford or Cambridge (UK)

It has to be said that your old highschool is a touch creepy looking. However, I've seen gargoyles on university buildings, so I suppose it's not that strange. Just not a common feature of most public schools in my city (AFAIK).

I'll take creepy looking as a compliment. I *love* that building. It's entirely creepy. It's part of its fabulous charm.

To me it just looks Victorian/19th Century gothic, which I like, although that is when they did do it best

It's very 19th C. gothic (though it was built in the early 20th c.) Looks like exactly what it is.
