So... some of my early favorites are the shots of Avenue B's Christodora House circa February 1929....Not much has changed from the exteriors....
Dunno about the interiors... never been inside ... so, here's the "music auditorium" (Did Iggy play here when he lived at the Christodora?)
the "Christadora medical clinic"
"fireplace in lounge"
My favorite: "Miss Kupkey's bedroom, D-4"
a "general view of the dining room"
And lastly... the fabled Christodora House pool!
The Christodora was built in 1928. Read more history here.

Two photos I took last month of the Christodora House that I didn't know what to do with...
