Photographer's Note

This is the only building I have ever seen with round windows. It is the Maritime Hotel, located in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan.

It was originally built in 1966 as guestrooms for members of a sailors union, and to make them feel at home, the windows were designed to look like the portholes on a ship. Over the years this building has transformed into a home for runaway teens, and a dormitory for Chinese students, before becoming the chic hotel it is today.

I have not been inside any of the guestrooms, but from photos I've seen on the internet, you do get the feeling of being on a ship while looking out of these windows. My view is from the courtyard, where an outdoor café is located.
