Network - 9th Avenue. Watercolor on Paper. 22 x 30"
Looking north up Ninth Avenue from the corner of west 50th Street in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan, NYC. This area lies just west of the busiest parts of Midtown, but for now it is still comparatively quiet residential neighborhood. Ninth Avenue in the 40s and 50s is lined with an incredible variety of family-owned international restaurants, bakeries and delis - all of which are slowly being replaced by upscale bars and eateries. In the distance are the twin towers of the Time Warner Center, built in 2003 at Columbus Circle on the corner of Central Park, and the Hearst Tower, built in 2006. Despite being surrounding by some of the most rapid development in the city, for now Hell's Kitchen is holding on to its past.
