Essex HouseJILL GILL has preserved long-gone New York blocks and buildings — in watercolor and ink — since the 1960s. Her more than one hundred paintings feature the former Best's and Bonwit Teller's, the old IBM & ATT buildings, the Third Avenue tenements that preceded the Lipstick Building, and the 53rd Street brownstones and mansions adjacent to MoMA prior to Museum Tower.

Also depicted is the iconic landmark, the Art Deco 57th Street Automat, and emotional landmarks such as Chambord and Mama Leone restaurants, the Women's Exchange, and the Thalia, New Yorker, Little Carnegie and Trans-Lux 85th Street cinemas. Also celebrated is the Broadway stretch of the Theater District when the buildings were low and billboards, not neon, reigned.
