Hovel and the Skyscraper  1904

by Childe Hassam

This snow scene, one of only about a dozen the artist produced, depicts Central Park as seen from the rear window of his apartment on West Sixty-seventh Street in New York City. An old riding stable in the middle distance is framed by newer, taller buildings and a gridwork of scaffolding and beams being hoisted into place.
