Photo by myself of the New York Times Building, around 40th Street and 7th Avenue in the Garment District.
The sun was setting, and all the buildings were a mix of sepia tones against the blue sky.
The facade of the tower is made up of white porcelain tubes. The tubes form screens in front of glass curtain walls. The building has a nice amount of detail for passersby, while remaining distinct from faraway.
I took a closer photo of the front and signage here. Of course, people have tried to climb the tower. So far none have been successful.
