23rd & 6th Ave [SW Corner] (October 14, 2012)

The cast-iron building on this busy Chelsea / Flatiron corner was built in 1870, as William Moir's high-end jewelry store. The location was perfect, because, just a few years later (in 1878), the 6th Avenue elevated train opened, showering the neighborhood with commercial success. Today, the building stands proud, next to Burlington Coat Factory, Best Buy, and Home Depot.  CLICK TO ENLARGE
