Yesterday when I left home, I saw the foggy sky and decided that I grabbed my camera with me as well and took these, nothing fancy and done with my point and shoot.

There was an alarm at Empire state building, but looks like it was fine afterall.

Nice Ken One thing that never amazes me when I go to NYC is the amount of scaffolding one has to walk under

1.5 is for studios I think, that and the monthly maintaince will be about 3k a month at least, too much tourists by the park anyway. On the up side, its walking distance to like 4 ADs.

Walking distance from 4 ADs? Must be like paradise if someone lives there then right? I would love it.

Actually I'm wrong.

The building that montecristo shot is on the right and its not The New York Life Building its the MetLife Tower.

Being a native New Yorker I'm embarassed to have made the error but it was an honest mistake as the buildings are only three blocks apart and both have pyramid tops. The New York Life building is on the left with the gold top.

Here is a pictrure of both taken from Madison Square Park.
