Stumbles

In determining what buildings will make it into my guidebook of 21st-century New York City architecture I've tried to see every building that I've researched in one form or another (online, in a book, in a magazine, from your suggestions). In my various treks about the city to do the above I've stumbled across buildings unknown to me, documenting them with my digital camera and then using sites like New York City's Department of Building's BIS or ACRIS or Curbed to search for relevant information on the building, particularly the architect.

Below are some of those buildings. A few are candidates for my book, but even the ones that won't make the final cut have led me to architects and buildings I wouldn't have found otherwise, and in turn I've found some gems that way. These are examples of how research is a back-and-forth mix of various media: digital, print, and of course direct experience.

  1. Where's the Gam Mee Ok?
    I assume it's the same franchise as what's on 32nd Street in Manhattan, just romanized differently. Good food.

  2. Yes, I do believe it's related to the one on 32nd Street. According to the signage the one in Queens also has an art space. It's on Northern Blvd near Francis Lewis Blvd.
