 41 Cooper, lamp, tree, February 16, 2017

This curvy building is a (relatively) new Cooper Union facility and sits kitty-corners across Cooper Square from the original Cooper Union building, where Lincoln once spoke (and Obama!); read all about that building here. The one pictured here was designed by Thom Mayne and has a LEED Platinum (!!) rating. Read all about it here. And … I didn’t notice when I took the picture that I got the lamp post lined up with the tree and the vertical bar on the lamp itself to line up with the vertical window frames on the building — nifty!
