No, the NY Olympic Commitee's office is there and they had an open house today.

Ah, very nice.

Great pictures, also. Did you happen to see how progress is coming on those apartment buildings?

I stayed pretty much west of City Hall so I didn't see them. I work close to the one going up next to Chase and its up to the 38th floor. Its pretty boring rose brick with the floor slabs visible in the facade. In other words its cheap looking.

Hey, thats the Equitable Building in shot number eight. You rarely get to see that building in its fullness unless you are up in the air.

That building is so big, yet not very famous. Its not very famous, but changed city zoning for ever.

39 stories "straight up," as its owners stated in their advertisements. Until 1931 it was the most valuable office building in the world.

If there ever was a building to generate a canyon effect all by itself, this is the one.
