Between 1934 and 1980 an elevated portion of the New York Central Railroad brought freight trains directly into the Merchants Refrigerating Company Warehouse in Chelsea. The building is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Back in Philadelphia to visit my family and looking forward to hearing the Philadelphia Orchestra (where I used to work). Here is a shot of their beautiful hall, The Kimmel Center, designed by Rafael Vinoly, from my archives.
Here’s another look at Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles. Taken in the lobby of the third floor. I love the warmth of the woods and how they visually echo the sounds of the strings in the concert hall.
