My 10-year old niece from Oregon was admiring the shiny blue skyscraper that is near Battery Park and visible from the Statue of Liberty. *Can someone tell me what it is?

I think it's 17 State Street, a 41-story building, completed in 1988.

Agreed that it's 17 State Street (one of my favorites!). There must have been pretty clear skies that day since that building is like a giant curved mirror.

Love it. And the old church right next to this towering modern building is a great contrast.
