It's a huge fortress of a building and I've never seen anyone go in or our of it.

I don't think it's a residence. Maybe an artist owns it, like Robert Rymans building in the West Village. The whole front is glass windows - I should have shot it in the day. On the top floor there is a light on.

The front door is amazing and I would keep it exactly like this. My investigation led to some information:

"This building, which looks like a giant-robot laboratory,
was actually built in 1919-21 as a New York Edison transformer
substation--turning DC current into AC. Since 1980 it's been
owned by artist Walter De Maria."

Some De Maria pieces:

Of course, he would HAVE to have that building. It makes total sense.
