Photographer's Note

My walk down St. Markís Place in the East Village began at Cooper Square, named for Peter Cooper, a 19th Century industrialist and philanthropist. This spot is a mix of older architecture, and newer buildings with glass facades.

In this view you can see a reflection of the Wanamaker Building, formerly a department store, named after its founder John Wanamaker. Itís a Cast Iron beauty built in 1907 and is now a mix of offices and retail. It is reflected in one of the newer office buildings.

If you look closely, you can also see a unique subway entrance in this scene. Itís the northbound entrance of the Astor Place station, which has a very decorative entry kiosk. Itís an imitation of original subway kiosks that were made of cast iron and glass. Like the originals, it has a domed roof with cast iron shingles.

In the WS is another building in the area.
