In the latest installment in the ongoing photo project series “What’s Outside the Window?”  here are images of the view out the window from the back room at Bar Bossa, a Brazilian boteco bar and restaurant housed in a classic NYC tenement building on Elizabeth Street in New York City’s Nolita / Lower East Side neighborhood.

This photo was taken on a recent snowy day and shows the Lower Manhattan skyline in the distance and the rooftops and tenements of the Lower East Side and Nolita in the foreground. The tallest building is the nearly completed 1 World Trade Center building, or “Freedom Tower,” built at the site of the Twin Towers that were destroyed on 9/11.

In this picture, at right, you can see the black storefront flag of the Armani Exchange shop that occupies the ground floor of the cast-iron loft building.

What’s Outside the Window – Vol. 24

The view looking south out a rounded window of the new super-contemporary architectural extension to the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. From this window, one can see the Museumplein, a vast lawn criss-crossed with paths for bikes and pedestrians. On the far side is the southern part of the Museumkwatier, an upscale area that’s home to many consulates (the U.S. consulate can be seen at the left in the picture).
