Central Park Reds, 3 of 5. 🎼 it’s fun to stay at the YMCA 🎼🎤🎼, especially this one housed in a remarkable 1930 building @ W63/Central Park West, hiding behind a grove of red berries.  The building was designed by the renowned architect Dwight David Baum, who in the 1920s designed over 100 superb Tudor, Mediterranean, Italian and Colonial houses in the wooded and hilly Fieldston section of Riverdale, the Bronx.  Writing for The NY Times in 2002, Christopher Gray remarked of the YMCA: “the tapestry brickwork of Baum's Y is like a castellated Italian hill town, with towers, battlements and balconies rising in irregular sympathy, culminating in a huge, central tower with an octagonal roof.” Indeed it’s architecturally great fun to stay at the YMCA. .
