Midtown Mixed Bag

Within easy walking distance of each other in the lower East 30's, these sights are a sign of the crazy quilt of the area..

First, an Irish pub which also advertises an Orange sign, which means I suppose they welcome all and any...sign of new Ireland, maybe?

Then there is a Baptist Church which doesn't look much like a traditional church. But then, this is Midtown.

Finally, a very ordinary row house which is being auctioned at high-end Sotheby's. Thirty years ago, it would have been hard to sell this building, now it is considered prime real estate...

Such are the myriad delights of Midtown East.
