Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Architecture

An amazing example of Architecture is the Lyceum Theater in New York City, which opened in 1903. It is one of the three oldest surviving Broadway venues. It is the oldest continuously operating legitimate theater in New York City, and the first Broadway theater ever to be granted landmark status (1974). The theater maintains most of its original Beaux-Arts design, made of gray limestone-colored terra cotta. I passed it when I was in NYC last week and had to stop to photograph its beauty.DSCN5161

  1. New York has wonderful old theatres. We have a few old ones here, but they are much smaller and not nearly as grand as New York. That’s one of the things I most miss from New York. Ah Broadway. Great photos!
