Historic Buildings and staircases in the Bronx NYC

 I took some photos of some great historical architecture that you just can't find or replicate these days, in neighborhoods that are not in Manhattan.  The Bronx's architectural secrets;








In the Bronx and in upper Manhattan there are these grand giant staircases that connect hilly and steep streets, this staircase is located at 169th st Webster Avenue and connects to teller Avenue that leads towards the grand Concourse.   It is such a shame that these beautiful structures are littered with garbage, and are falling in some disrepair.  Some of these staircases are connected to the buildings next to them with entrances off the staircases, but now have been sealed with brick.
