The NYC's main branch of the Post Office on 34th Street and 8th Avenue has some beautiful examples of architectural jewelry that, at one time, was a common inclusion in buildings. The marble and metal of a bygone age have frequently yielded to plastic and other artificial materials. I love to visit this P.O. to see the elegance that represents care and attention to detail.
