85th St Between York Ave and 1st Ave

With a whole mess of different architectural styles lining this block of apartments, it's hard to find any sort of common lineage. Even some identical, connected buildings have been painted to differentiate themselves. This hodge-podge of styles make for an interesting residential stretch.

Like many of the blocks this far east, it's generally very quiet and had a rather narrow sidewalk dotted with trees. I didn't notice any particularly new buildings, but you can certainly see them rising up all around on surrounding streets.
