As the eighth project in our 10-Year North America Anniversary Countdown, Gramercy Square is a testament to our New York studio’s skill in renovating and rehabilitating a historical site. Originally built in 1892, this former hospital served the local community until 2008 when it closed. In an aim to reinvent the site, the designers were presented with five interconnected buildings totaling 400,000 square feet to be converted into residential buildings. In order to achieve this, two of the existing buildings were razed and parts of other buildings were demolished to maximize value and quality. The tallest tower, standing at 17 stories, was preserved. After some reworking, the resulting design is a residential precinct made up of four buildings, three of which were converted and one that was built from the ground up, with the same square footage as the original precinct. #woodsbagotinnorthamerica#tenyearsinnorthamerica

This week I'm celebrating 10 years of living in NYC! New York can be a tough town sometimes, which is why people always say "I LOVE New York!" You have to love it here. It's too much work to exist here if you only just *like* it. That being said, I LOVE New York and Im proud to call it my home and be a humble citizen and devotee.
I'm proud to be one of the people being pushed aside on the street by some busy lady on her way to work. Im proud to stand on the subway platform and watch some guy urinate on the tracks. I'm proud to walk past the aisles and aisles of trash lined up on the streets every night. I'm also proud of the diversity, the edge, the drive, the beauty and the glamour of New York. For me, NYC is a daily open display of humanity and I'm constantly inspired, invigorated and humbled by this great city. .
Come visit us sometime! Just make sure you check out the West Village, only go to Times Square at night and for god's sake, skip Bubba Gump Shrimp and eat some Italian food. 🗽⛲️🏟🚏🌆🏙 .

The pinching of her skirt is a sign of "i'm over this!" She would never tell me this, but I observe her so much that these are the little things I know just by watching. She was hungry at that point, probably a bit aggravated. We stop and headed to grab something to eat.... #parenting#mindfulness#conciousness#siddyinthesity
