Woolworth Building

That's it in the near foreground, with the Empire State Building in the far background. The Village is in there somewhere!

I didn't think they called anything "Woolworth" anymore. Shows how much I know!

Terrific photo...you can sense the city winding down as the lights come on.

I love the Woolworth building and I think it is much under rated. I suppose everyone thinks of ESB and Chrysler buildings when they think of NYC.

The cathedral of commerce, I think, no? I love that building. It's like lace. But it is so hard to capture it. You found the right trick.
Very atmospheric. I like.

"Start spreading the news... I'm leaving today... I want to be a part of it... NEW YORK, NEW YORK!"

Sorry. That song jumped into my head as soon as I saw your image. BEAUTIFUL Ken. Wow.

So pretty it makes me want to live there. I'm so glad that I do!

A friend of mine once described the lights on the buildings, when the sunlight is waning, as looking like jewels. I completely agree. Beautiful, Ken.
