Ansonia Apartment Hotel in New York


Here's a great old, undivided-back postcard mailed on August 27, 1906 .... over 100 years ago! It was mailed from Brooklyn, Coney Island Station, to Mrs. James Esterly in Reading PA. The card was published by the Stern Pub. of Brooklyn N.Y. It features the famous Ansonia Hotel, still standing today after all these years. This is an amazing old building.

As featured on eBay!

Babe Ruth lived here at one time. And this is the semi-spooky place where, "Don't Say a Word" was filmed. Learn more about this grand old building at Wikipedia.

I LOVE building architecture. Especially of the old buildings, they put such detail into every nook and cranny.

Such a great old building. I'd love to get a closer look at the inside as well. Be sure to check out the link to Wikipedia to learn more about this place as well as the Beaux-Arts architectural style.
