The Empire State Building. The tallest skyscraper in New York now. It’s amazing to stare up at this thing (didn’t want to pay the $17 admission to go to the top). There was also some ride at the top called “Skyride” or something. Sounded sort of frightening.

It was bound to happen, Apple designs something really well and then someone copies it.

I was informed that yesterday’s photo is the Flatiron Building (thanks, Peter!), built in 1902. It’s quite an interesting building that sits at the diagonal intersection of Broadway and 5th. I was trying to get all artsy with the photo, but it’s actually quite tall (especially for 1902).
