    Wow, I forgot how defining 30 Rock used to be from the Hudson River. Manhattan seems so much narrower before all of the office space west of 6th Avenue was built up. You can even see 570 Lexington -- all the way over on Lexington Avenue -- in all its glory from the West side. What a different skyline.

    Thank you for taking the time, and having the patience to post all of these wonderful photographs. Particularly the last batch. They led me to the others which I would have missed because they were posted during my absence.

    WOW Radiohead...Thank YOU for bringing back the memories!
    That worlds fair was my first visit to the states...
    These Monsters are some of my fondest-If I remember correctly,
    the mouth on the T-Rex slowly opened and closed-
    and back then, that was a sight to behold!!

    This view is so much better without HSBC.



    So this is what Southbridge Towers replaced. I should blow this up and bring it to the next CB1 meeting.

    Great photostream of New York's skyline throughout the years.

    I think the Midtown skyline is more attractive now than it's been in the past...of course taking a closer look at the individual buildings is another story.



    The towers of the 60's and 70's took the softness out of the skyline but I find them a a necessary evil.
