Madison Ave Between 37th St and 35th St

Meanwhile, in the "land-of-bus-stops-and-not-much-else"...

I was really pleased by and enamored with some of the ironwork I found on these blocks. Other than that, Madison remains a street I seldom visit. Even though it's outward appearance is of a bustling avenue, I'm amazed time-and-time again by how little there is of interest to me here (in a commercial-sense).

Like the rest of the city, the block is aided by the blooming trees and flowers all around. Even on a gloomy day, like when I visited, the fresh-ness of Spring is evident everywhere.

Of course, what would Madison Avenue be if there weren't ornate buildings, with fancy stonework? Well, even more boring I suppose. But luckily this stretch of the street had it's fair share of interesting architecture.
