I had a pair of Adidas in these colors back in the early 1980s. The tower in the background is Riverside Church.
A few of the buildings in Manhattanville. The neighborhood architecture is largely forgettable. I've read somewhere that Columbia's preliminary plans are to replace most of the buildings it owns in the neighborhood. Tearing down existing buildings wouldn't be much of a loss, but some of the architectural renderings of the new buildings are hideously oversized and tacky in appearance. Some of those renderings can be seen by browsing through the university's campus planning web pages.
On one of these posts I'll provide a little Manhattanville history, but not this one.
