The Charm of Random Details
One thing I really love about older buildings - and we've got plenty of those here in Albany - are the little details you find on them. A carved cherub or a fluted column or a beautifully curving iron rail. Small things that add a bit of charm, even to some very utilitarian structures.
This building, with its old street sign and ornamental carving, stands at the corner of Broadway and, obviously, Hudson Avenue.
