Skylight for Magritte*

East Village

*This building -- on Seventh Street between First Avenue and Avenue A -- was renovated in such a way that the area behind part of the facade was "hollowed out" and left open to the sky. It creates a very interesting, somewhat jarring effect. I've yet to see anything else like it in Manhattan.

Now that's a cool looking renovation. I can only imagine what the did on the interior walls to take advantage of the newly opened space.
