Gilding, American Piano Building, 57th Street












This building connects music and religion: here, and with the gilded horn and harp-playing angels on its crown.

It's nice to see that the American Piano building still sells pianos after all this time. We understand that the young Laurel and Hardy used to work here as porters, but were fired after one too many mishaps on the stairs with the pianos. Later they made this experience the subject of one of their movies.
