Photo by myself on the 28th floor above Bryant Park, at 42nd Street and Sixth Avenue.
Another photo from my excursion on Monday. Far below, people sunned themselves on one of the first hot days of the year.
In the background looms the white Neo-Classical facade of the New York Public Library. The Library facade has recently been unveiled, after spending many months under scaffolding.
Most New Yorkers don't see the skyline very often, unless they work on a high floor. We typically spend our time crawling about on the ground and underground, oblivious to what's going on above. In fact, if you're not alert, you can easily walk by tall landmarks such as the Chrysler Building without knowing it.
This photo reminds me that you can always be seen. I've lunched in Bryant Park countless times, and never considering that there were people above.
For those interested in seeing the color version of yesterday's photograph, I added it to the end of yesterday's post.
