Chevrolet 210

architecture in queens

I like to think that I have hard-and-fast rules when it comes to these car photos but sometimes something like this comes along and everything goes out the window. This street is mostly warehouses and repair shops (see VW shot on this same street) which makes this apartment building really stand out. I wanted to look away yet I was drawn to the pink brick and marble balustrades. Moth. Flame. Either way this Italian-villa background for me is busy and unbalanced, yet strangely perfect for this old Chevrolet.
Fair play to you, Queens.
