What a Loss! Its sad that so many buildings in New York were demolished. What would it be if New York was stuck in time, let say before 1930? It would be the most beautiful city in the world!

I would like to say goodbye to everyone who looked through my posts. The doctors have found a very serious neurological problem (there is a high possibility that it is ALS), therefore due to my deteorating health I can't devote as much time as I used to do to study the architecture. I hope you really admired these photos just like I did.

@artObserver That must be very scary for you, I am so sorry to hear that. I of course hope that it is something else, but come what may, enjoy every day the best you can. This is a great and fascinating thread, thank you for all of your efforts and for sharing your passion here with us!

I'm incredibly sorry to hear that! I've been dealing with my own mental health problems that aren't NEARLY as bad, and yet those are still Incredibly rough. I can't imagine how troubling that must be for you!

Belleview-Biltmore Hotel: Clearwater, Florida



"Known as 'The White Queen of the Gulf,' this hotel hosted presidents, business tycoons and European royalty underneath its signature green roofs.
The 820,000-square-foot complex located on 21 prime acres of land abutting Clearwater Harbor, built from native Florida pine, stood as one of the
world's largest wooden structures, a beautiful reminder of the golden age of Gulf hotels complete with accents of Tiffany glass and detailed woodwork
inside. The dream of railroad magnate Henry Plant, the building sadly fell prey to investors, who began demolishing the grand dame with plans to
transform the property into condos and townhomes." - Curbed

Fabulous post AO, thanks a lot for sharing!

The Richfield Tower was among my top Art Deco favourites of the American west.
It should definitely get reconstructed (maybe at another location). Same goes for the Giralda-resembling Tower of Madison Square Garden. A marvel!

I also want to hope that some lost architectural pearls in New York will decorate this city again. The problem lies in the high costs of reconstructing a building with such a sophisticated pattern. I hope that in the future the development of the technologies will decrease the expenses on the labor of sculptors and mason workers and these buildings can be reconstructed.
