With the highline looming in the distance, there are two distinct styles of apartments on this block: Older project-style housing, and new glass-curtain condos. It's interesting to see side-by-side since both are products of urban redevelopment plans of their time (well, kinda-sorta). The big plan back when the older buildings were erected was to combine many blocks into singular superblocks and provided massive, bland apartment buildings with low rent. Now-days it's all about sleek glass and metal..."modern" style. But since practically everything new is following the same template, the end up being just as bland as the old superblock buildings.
The big mystery on this street was how a lone White Castle box made it's way either from midtown, or Queens.
