House of No

I have been waiting years (years!) to be stopped at just this spot above Sunset Park on the Gowanus Expressway. Finally, last week, on a clear day with light traffic in the other direction, it happened. My black-and-white whale: the "Say No to Drugs But Yes to Rugs" House.  Got you!
Traveling both directions, somehow I never connected one side with another. This is also the building I call the Morandi House because of its odd stuccoed turret. Bonus!
Giorgio Morandi, Natura Morta (1964)
See what I mean? Can we landmark this building before it's too late?


  1. Excellent - I was hoping you'd get to this building!! I've only photographed it from Third.
