Architecture of Shadows [1959]

Yes, the whole movie is beautiful beginning to end; and yes, the nostalgia I have for the gritty streets is itself a shopworn cliche.  But none of that should prevent us from enjoying these clips, showing the City we love for all the reasons we're still here, whether or not it is too. 

The bust station!

The gentle scale of the old garden at the Modern.

"This place is just for some sexless women who don't have any love in their life!"

Please see my post on the blog ChairsAndBuildings for a short discussion of the Museum of Modern Art in 2013
