KM, taken from where? Through glass? Just wondering. I like it!

What great contrast between the building styles! I'm so glad I found you.

What a terrific photo! So much to study and search; and like oatmeal girl said - the contrast in building styles is fantastic - absolutely makes one wonder what we are thinking with the sterile glass and steel monstrosities we hoist upon our cityscapes. The beauty and interest of the older buildings is so much more appealing and comforting.

Wow - I've never seen NYC from this percpective before.

Petrea said...

It gives a glimpse into the old days. A chance to let our imaginations view New York City 75 years ago or more. I have to agree with boromax--that big block is sterile. Useful, I'm sure, but a good architect could have made it useful and beautiful.

What a fantastic photo, Ken. I wanted you to be sure to look at my blog when you get a minute, OK? Thanks.

Lynette said...

Ken Mac, thanks for your visit, kind words, the mention of the book that has been a comfort to you, and that good advice, to take it easy on myself.

alex said...

your photos always capture the evolution of NYC so well, but this one really juxtaposes the old and new in the most literal way. thanks for sharing!

Kitty said...

cool, Ken
Where is this taken from? I'm not sure I know that glass tower to the north

Oakland Daily Photo said...

Once those towers went in, there went the penthouse views for those in the brick building.

Doorman and unobstructed views of the East River...my father-in-law just sold his penthouse view from a brick building...

I think I prefer "the old version"

Curlykale said...

I like the way the bridge draws the eye away into the distance.
You're on the money with this one Ken.

C.K

Fantastic picture!
Amazing these trees on the roof of the building!

Laurie said...

This is just beautiful, Ken. It's like we're gliding above the city.

Banjo52 said...

Yes, old vs. new is very clear here. I have nothing to add except the question, Does anyone think the new is as attractive? If not, why did it evolve . . . EVERYWHERE? Economics is my guess, but I've never heard an explanation.

altadenahiker said...

that's one of the prettiest things I've ever seen.

Louis la Vache said...

Ken - link this to Sunday Bridges this coming Sunday!

James said...

I love it! Nice one.

Sharon Creech said...
