Inside the lobby of 157 Columbus Avenue, home to The Yard, a co-working space, and other businesses, is a lovely, under-the-radar gallery of cartoons and a collection of The New Yorker and Story magazine covers.

Their unique style actually is that of R.O. Blechman, a cartoonist and animator, whose work was placed in our Lincoln Center-area office building lobby at 157 Columbus Avenue by Landmark West, a preservationist group dedicated to preserving the history and culture of the Upper West Side.
