West Village Architecture - New York City Art Print
This New York City art print features West Village architecture from the corner of 7th Avenue and 14th Street. Years ago, I named this particular print "Generic New York City." Not because it was boring but because of a story that happened on one of my tours of New York City. The tour guide became flustered when the bus was detoured down a street for which she had nothing prepared to say... She sat in silence for a bit... and finally said, "this... this is generic New York..." I loved the term and it became an inside joke with friends the rest of the trip. Anytime I saw something that I thought was quintessential New York City, like these rooftops and building facades, I would call it Generic New York.
And to me the scene from this West Village art print is definitely the essence of New York. This is the New York City where people live and dream. And I daresay the New York City that many of us who live far away picture whether we've ever set foot in NYC or not. From the pre-war brick architecture to the air conditioners hanging out of windows and, of course, those classic water tanks.
What attracted you to this particular New York City print? Do you call this part of Manhattan home? Or do you, like me, simply love the style of generic New York?
