The New York Life Building was Kansas City's first skyscraper and the first building in KC to have an elevator. Built in 1890, it has an identical twin in Nebraska, downtown Omaha's National Bank Building. #DrawKC #tbt #urbansketchers
When the Flatiron Building was completed in 1902, New Yorkers were convinced that, with its triangular shape and 22 stories of height, it would take nothing more than a strong wind to knock the building down. I checked this afternoon and 115 years later and the Flatiron Building is still standing, one of the most spectacular structures in New York City. #DrawNYC

In today's Sunday drawing, we've got three bridges for the price of one. That's the Ward's Island Bridge, connecting Randall's Island to Spanish Harlem. In the distance you can see the arches of the Hell Gate Bridge and the spires of the RFK Bridge. #DrawNYC #urbansketchers
