East from East

This is Midtown East as seen from Roosevelt Island. The glass towers just left of center are One and Two United Nations Plaza, a group of buildings built over a span of several years (1976 and 1983), designed by Kevin Roche John Dinkeloo & Associates. The hotel/apartments/office building was completed in 1976 as a city/state/U.N. project. In 1999 the hotel was purchased by Millennium Hotels to become the Millennium UN Plaza Hotel - it has an indoor swimming pool and the only indoor tennis courts in a NYC hotel. To the left of the complex we find the Empire State Building and to the right the Chrysler Building. In the lower left you can see the United Nations General Assembly building with its domed roof. At the far right you can see the Met Life building (formerly the Pan Am Building) the subject of a previous posting ...

New York mon Amour
Toujours là, pour plaire
Un habit de lumière et de verre
Pour moi, la plus belle ville du monde.
La plus belle ambiance du monde
Mon coin favori "Bryant Park"

I think Jack has said it all! This is a great photo Brian. BTW, I think you would like my husband's blog - Adelaide Daily Photo - while his is more a "tongue in cheek" style of humour - he is an architect and occasionally will post a photo of a building or two. Over Christmas he posted a number of photos of the Sydney Opera House while we were there on holidays.
