    That's the best Citgroup shot I've ever seen.

    Also, the "Empire State down" is quite innovative.

    The Chrysler Building hasn't changed a bit from the old photographs. Very heartening.

    Neither the ESB

    The great thing about black and white photography is that it often brings out more detail than colour photography does.

    In the pic titled "Walk", the Chrysler is fit snuggly into the glass scraper in front of it, giving the Chrysler a new glass lower-half. How interesting with a 'new look' Chrysler.

    That glass building in the "Walk" pic is actually quite old. Trump had the building stripped down to the steel and refaced in that reflective glass. It is now the Grand Hyatt hotel.

    Those 2 towers in the foreground of "From Roosevelt Island" are the ones that tried to stop Trump World Tower from being built as it blocked their views of the Empire State and the Chrysler building.

    Oh, but it wasn't about the views. It was a matter of respect for the UN institution.

    Fifth Avenue pic is pure awesome, just like the rest. I also like the ESB down pic.

    Thanks for that tid-bit of info, JM Garcia. I wouldn't have known that. Still makes quite a snug lower glass part of the Chrysler from that angle in the pic titled "Walk".
