New & old at 42nd St., and the Columbus Monument

This building is rising on the northwest corner of 42nd St. and 6th Ave. The shapes of the corners look intriguing, particularly compared to the standard boxy International Style skyscrapers that line 6th Ave. in Midtown.

Arched ceiling and lamp (ca. 1900-1910) over the stairs inside New York Public Library's research branch at 42nd St. and Fifth Ave.

Columbus Monument viewed from inside the Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle, intersection of 8th Ave., Central Park South and Broadway. The dark lines are the window mullions. Too bad the TWC was finished too late for me to include a photo like this in Outdoor Monuments of Manhattan.
