Inspiration, Strike me!

I love to stop and draw when I take walks in New York. I'm inspired by architectural details and monumental perspective, contrasts of space and light. Usually I wander aimlessly until I find an interesting spot to sit with my sketchbook, but that's a bit tougher when it's 20 degrees outside. I'm in the process of setting up weekly sketching adventures with a novice artist friend, and I feel there should be some planning involved. Help me compile a list of potentially inspiring places we can sit and sketch in the city without our fingers freezing off. [more inside]

Archie Bunker lived in an Archie Bunker

Did the term "Archie Bunkers" for the detached houses in Queens, NY come from "All in the Family," or did Norman Lear name the character after the term?

Where can I find mid century design examples in New York?

I am looking for buildings in New York City with public spaces that are good examples of mid century modern design and architecture. Building lobbies, plazas, diners, etc. Something along the lines of the old TWA terminal 5 at JFK.
