How much can a window reveal of the life of others? I remember pondering this as I walked on West End Avenue with a friend of mine this past holiday season. One’s eye can’t help but wander into the segments provided by facades, lighting, sounds, and smells. In one house, I remember, I saw a beautiful and perfectly lit Christmas tree. “That’s the kind of Christmas tree I’d like to have in my house,” I said. Some other windows were a quite interesting sneak peak into the residential life of the Upper West Side: nannies, toys, television screens. Other windows told very little; some windows were shut. Whether there was a lot to learn from each or not, I came up with my own story for what I could and couldn’t see. Now, what’s a better segue to Jose Guizar’s ongoing (and online) project Windows of New York?

Here at the studio, as many of you might have picked up on, we savor pretty much anything that’s somehow related to the city of New York. Guizar’s project, apart from the appealing graphics and cool idea, is also easily relatable. For starters, the unique design of each window is not at all one of a kind (for the most part). The architecture of the city often leaves me feeling like a sponge– absorbing, taking it all in without even realizing. To continue, Guizar includes an address under each illustration, which I’m not going to lie is pretty tempting to go out and gaze at. See for myself, you know?
