East

This is Manhattan facing east towards Queens, shot from the Rockefeller Center observatory just before sunset. The Citicorp building is at the far left - the lone tall building in the distance just left of center is the Citicorp Building in Queens (the tallest building in that borough). The green topped building in the center is the Waldorf Astoria hotel - to its immediate left is the GE Building at 570 Lexington Ave. The green strip of land in the middle of the East River is Roosevelt Island. I always find aerial views of NYC so inspiring. The density just makes me feel like everything is there and anything is possible - the New York of dreams, song and film ....
