oh, hi @ashleywaxman 🗽

Food from above / Comida desde el cielo 🐄🐐🐔🐦
.
Located in the Upper West Side, in the corner of Broadway and West 73rd, the Ansonia shows a rare example of a Beaux Arts tall building in a city better known for its art deco skyscrapers.
.
It was commissioned as a residential hotel by Mr. William Earle Dodge Stokes, owner and holder of the Ansonia Clock Company, named after his grandfather Anson Greene Phelps. The architect was a man called Paul E. Duboy.
.
Built between 1899 and 1904, it became the first air conditioned hotel and the largest residential hotel of its time, with luxurious multi room apartments combined with other smaller apartment with centralized kitchens on each floor so that they could get dinner from their own chefs. The strangest attribute of the building was at the top: they had their own farm with chickens, goats, ducks and cows in order to provide fresh food to their inhabitants. But in 1907, the Department of Health shut down the farm in the sky.

Fue comisionada como un hotel residencial por el Sr. William Earle Dodge Stokes, dueño de la Ansonia Clock Company, nombrada así por su abuelo,Anson Greene Phelps. El arquitecto fue el Sr. Paul E Duboy.
.
Construido entre 1899 y 1904, se transformó en el hotel residencial más grande de su época, así como también el primero en tener aire acondicionado. Apartamentos lujosos de varios cuartos coexistían con unidades más pequeñas con cocinas centralizadas, para poder disfrutar comidas elaboradas por chefs. Pero lo más raro del edificio estaba en el techo: tenía su propia granja con gallinas, patos, cabras y ovejas para ofrecer productos frescos a sus habitantes. El departamento de Salud cerró la granja de los cielos en 1907.
