🇫🇷 Notre-Dame📍Paris, France You may not find Quasimodo here, but you will find some magnificent architecture, history, and bells! 🔔 10 mighty bells to be exact. This Parisian icon has been claimed to be a “Gothic masterpiece” when it comes to architectural design and is arguably one of the most famous cathedrals in the world. Being that she’s over 850 years old, we won’t argue with that! If you’re in the area and looking for a good cup of joe, check out Tèlescope- a local cafe with excellent coffee. At least that’s what a Rayka user recommended 😉 ☕️ 📷: @toadsoup_ . . . Have an awesome travel pic you want us to share?

St. Mark's Historic District is a historic district located in the East Village neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City. The district was designated a city landmark by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1969, and it was extended in 1984 to include two more buildings on East 10th Street. 📷 by @nyclovesnyc #stmarkshistoricdistrict #explorenyc #explorenewyorkcity #newyorkcitytrip #newyorkcitylife #eastvillagenyc #eastvillage #historiclandmarks #great_captures #great_captures_city

Petra - The Red Rose City. Renowned for its charm and ancient cultural heritage, Petra marks the achievement of an impressive civilization, the Nabataean Arabs, who perfectly carved the city into its mountains. It's a honeycomb of hand-hewn caves, temples, and tombs carved from blushing pink sandstone in the high desert of Jordan. 🌹

How about a cozy fire and a good book? BuffaloJump, encaustic 36x36. Visited this historic site in Montana and was moved to paint a full moon starry night sky - if you look hard, you will see barely visible natives waving blankets and standing on horses to chase giant creatures off the edge. The experience sparked imagination at a time in my life when I needed to express a lot of feelings. Available.

One of the many things you can come across as you explore the beautiful city of Venice. This is the house that Mozart stayed at during his stay in Venice in 1771!

I'm starting something new on instagram kinda. I want to spread love not hate. This isn't my original idea at all. But my bestie showed me this on facebook so why not bring it here too!? I'm actually working on a couple projects with this... One I can't tell it's a secret. I'm looking to get all 50 states, and some countries, plus even some historic landmarks if I can. Comment down below where you're from or if you want to trade. I have to get some index cards soon to make them look better but I always try to take my time & put creativity in it. I'm from Ohio. I've included some proofs that I've done. Dogs and kid NOT included, they're just so cute lol. Love is pure and love is kind. #lovearoundtheworldproject #littlelovenotes #tags #comment #states #towns #cities #countries #historiclandmarks #ohio

Botsford Briar, the first #BedandBreakfast in #Beacon, NY, was built around 1889 and designed by Arnout Cannon, a #HudsonValley architect who served as a lieutenant colonel in the Union Army before moving to #NewYorkCity to learn his trade. Commercially, Cannon’s work was prominent along Poughkeepsie’s #MainStreet shopping district and included the Elting Building, the M. Shwartz Building and the Sampson Brothers Clothing Store. He was also known for his work with hotels in the region, having provided major alterations to, among others, the Nelson House in #Poughkeepsie, Dibble House in Beacon, and the Mizzentop Hotel atop Quaker Hill in Pawling. This site represents one of his finest examples of #QueenAnne #Victorian residential design, featuring a turret that reaches up through the three stories as well as high ceilings, rich woodworking, and ornamental fireplaces throughout the property. . . . . . . . . . . . #historicdistrict #archdaily #architecture #design #designporn #archilovers #historichomes #preservationdirectory #landmarks #historiclandmarks #lookup #thisplacematters #restoration #weekendgetaway #escapebrooklyn #gf_nyc #instadaily #nyctravel #wanderlust #neogothic #masterpiece

This building represents one of several expansion sites developed by #Sterns Department Stores at the turn of the twentieth century. Brother Louis, Isaac, Bernard and Benjamin already had a headquarters on Sixth Avenue near ‪23rd Street‬, and also an additional site at 32‪ West 23rd Street. By 1892, the business was booming, calling for more‬ space and inciting the brothers to commission German architect W.M. Schickel to design the property. Schickel borrowed from the #RenaissanceRevival plan crafted by architect Henry Fernbach for the second Stern's site, expanding the cast iron facade and adding a new arched entrance to unite both wings. Painted white and stretching across eight city lots, the building was sometimes called "the big wedding cake on ‪23rd Street‬," which by then was a major #luxuryfashion and #retail corridor, part of the #LadiesMile #HistoricDistrict. By 1913, the city, and its top retailers, headed uptown, and Stern's moved to ‪42nd Street‬. It continued to expand through the twentieth century, until, in 2001, its remaining locations were converted into units of #Bloomingdales or #Macys and Stern Brothers disappeared. For most of the 1900s, the ‪23rd Street‬ structure housed manufacturing and shipping facilities; in 1968, the site was acquired by the Williams Real Estate Co., who launched a full restoration of the facade and welcomed in showrooms and offices. The site was later occupied by Hasbro and today houses a major Manhattan branch of Home Depot. . . . . . . . . #archdaily #architecture #designporn #designdaily #landmarks #historicsites #neoclassic #oldnewyork #luxuryrealestate #thisisnewyorkcity #lookup #Masterpiece #cityscapes #urbanstyle #skyscrapers #historiclandmarks #gf_nyc #thisplacematters #architecturephotography

Designed by #Chicago architect Daniel Burnham, the #Flatiron building was designed to fit the unique wedge-shaped property located at the intersection of #FifthAvenue and #Broadway. Built around a skeleton of steel, the Flatiron Building is fronted with limestone and terra-cotta and designed in the #BeauxArts style, featuring French and Italian #Renaissance influences and other trends seen at the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition. Some early critics referred to it as “Burnham’s Folly,” claiming that the triangular shape and height of the building would cause it to fall down. Newspaper reports at the time of the building’s completion focused on the potentially dangerous wind-tunnel effect created by the triangular building at the intersection of two big streets. Despite these concerns, the building has endured, serving as a beloved icon of #NewYorkCity for more than a century. . . . . . . . . . #archdaily #architecture #designporn #designdaily #landmarks #historicsites #neoclassic #oldnewyork #luxuryrealestate #thisisnewyorkcity #lookup #Masterpiece #cityscapes #urbanstyle #skyscrapers #historiclandmarks #gf_nyc #thisplacematters #historicdistrict #architecturephotography

For history buffs out there! I personally love checking out historic places in different cities. A lot of times I go by myself and geek out on history and I can just get lost in it! There’s so much we can learn from our past! Philadelphia is one of the most historic places in America from visiting where the Declaration was signed to where George Washing was swore into office being the first president to a battle ground of the Revolutionary war. Where there are still soldiers bodies buried in the ground from Washington’s army. I’ll leave you with this quote that is in Washington Square “freedom is a light which many men have died in darkness”. #deep #historylesson #pennsylvania #philadelphia #historiclandmarks #americanhistory #historylove #historynerd #seethesights #somuchtolearn

Built in 1925, the Shelburne Hotel was designed to bring luxury apartments and hotel accommodations to the #MurrayHill neighborhood. Original brochures for the property tout the area as the “cosmopolitan center of the city; a delightful mix of fine apartment residences and brownstone Townhouses.” Architect Charles Meyers, known for his #artdeco and #publicworks buildings, was commissioned by hotel proprietor Morris White to design the site. He offered a 15-story plan of red brick, terra-cotta trim and a staggered roof. Today, the property serves as a boutique hotel and also features commercial and dining establishments. . . . . . . . . . #archdaily #architecture #designporn #designdaily #landmarks #historicsites #neoclassic #oldnewyork #luxuryrealestate #thisisnewyorkcity #lookup #Masterpiece #cityscapes #urbanstyle #skyscrapers #historiclandmarks #gf_nyc #thisplacematters #historicdistrict #architecturephotography #nyctourist #instatravel #gf_nyc #manhattan #photooftheday #luxurytravel #midtown #gramercy
