451 Broome Street - SOHO NYC. This grand Italianate skyscraper was built in 1895 and it stands out among its more modest cast-iron neighbors on Broome Street. This is my third and larger painting of this building and it was both challenge and pleasure to paint it. I will probably paint its roof top in the future.

Really impressive. I love the way you break up the space with opposing lines; there's a lot of delicacy in all that ironwork.
