A visitor to the New York Heritage site (a project to which METRO members contribute), asked if we could help identify the name and location of a building her sister painted. Here's an excerpt from her note and the painting. Can you help us crowdsource more information about this building? Does it even exist in NYC? Is it just a design sketch? Let us know in the comments.
My sister was a watercolor artist and painted this building that is somewhere in Manhatten. I remember her mentioning it was a historic building. Would you maybe recognize it? If so, I would very much appreciate its name and address."
The building was painted in the 1980's by Ruta Odrach (1953-1993) who studied architecture at the Pratt Institute. She remained in NY until her death.
