Makes sense. I’m seeing some kind of different paving for the crosswalks.

I’m no expert, but I think crosswalks often used broad flat stones for an easier walking path.

Achitectural models are a key tool for storytelling: there’s a 1930s model of the original Museum of Modern Art in New York (1939), which Frey worked on under Philip Goodwin and Edward Durell Stone
