1515 Broadway, 43rd Floor

And then there were two: Bank of America Tower (under construction) and Conde Nast.

Westin Hotel and NYT Building.

The glass cube on the left with the circular floors inside is the top of the Marriott Marquis.

Me, looking anonymous.


Cool window washing rig.

1 [?] Penn Plaza.

1 Wall Street, 49th Floor

I had to stop myself from uploading more photos; there are more. This is the Bank of New York Mellon building. It's kind of unbelievable that they started building this at the beginning of the depression in '29, to me.

Towards Jersey.


That's 49 stories down.

Quite erotic, if you ask me, and a fine coat rack indeed.

This is the private bank on the first floor. Private meaning you can't enter unless you have a radio flyer full of cash. The red tile walls are pretty nuts. "The artist Hildreth Meière coordinated the installation of the mosaics, which were made by Ravenna Mosaics in Berlin and Long Island City."
The ceilings in this room are about 30' high and are clad, I shit you not, in Indonesian sea shells. This is the seven diamond hooker of board rooms.


I think these could possibly be the original furnishings from '31, less the exit signs. That green marble mantle-thing is more green in person.

Looking less like a hole and I wish I had zoomed in on the Deutsche Bank Tower's roof; looked interesting.

The habah.

1515 Broadway, 43rd floor

It seems like every time I'm in this building at 8am, it' rainy.

1350 6th?

I honestly don't remember, but if it's 1350, this is the 35th floor.

No way.

Blame it on the rain!
