☞ WALK: The Paterno Carriage Drive

We had a post last month on the iconic 440 Riverside Drive prewar building called The Paterno and mentioned its incredible driveway. The above shot is a glimpse of the Gothic archways, old wood and brass revolving door and cobblestone pavement. Although a little narrow for cars today, the entrance is still one of the grandest architectural details in Harlem. For a better look, take the 1 train to 116th Street and walk west towards Riverside Drive. To read more on The Paterno, go to the previous post: LINK
