At the corner of W. 58th and Seventh Avenue sits one of the most ornate buildings I have found in New York called The Alwyn Court. Every square inch seems to be carved and its skin is covered with gargoyles and sculpture reliefs. It is an amazing work of art.

Sitting inside is one of the fanciest french restaurants in the city, Petrossian. I have had a couple of celebration dinners  there and it is expensive, caviar and champagne expensive, but what a place to party.
