In 2013 13 historically important and beautiful New York buildings will turn 100 years old. While Manhattan is a city of change and new buildings like the Freedom Tower, One57, and 56 Leonard Street capture our attention today, passing by the stately buildings of the past like The Woolworth Building or Grand Central make our daily lives richer in New York. Sometimes I force myself to put my phone away as I move around the city and look up at buildings I have never noticed before. The wide collection of stunning architecture we have in New York is refreshing. See New York’s best of 100 years ago, couresty of Curbed.com’s summary of each building and a link to the building’s web-sites. As spring hides but waits around the corner follow this list and create a walking tour for a lazy spring weekend.
