Adopt a Building: Valentine’s Day!


This Valentine‘s Day, adopt a place you love on the Panorama of the City of New York and give the gift of love that’s bigger than the Empire State Building.

As far as we know, this apartment has never housed a future president or Oscar winner; it was never the site of any event of political or cultural importance; it has no hidden architectural treasures. But it’s where he and I first lived together, where we had our first fight about whether it was ok to leave pants on the floor overnight, where our friends gathered once a week to eat, drink, and watch Project Runway, where he proposed and where we planned our life together.
