Photo by myself at 23rd Street and Fifth Avenue, in the Flatiron District.
It was cold and rainy all day, Thursday. By evening, the sky was misty.
Ahead is the brilliantly lit Met Life Tower, which was once the tallest building in the world, way back in 1913.
Wikipedia writes that the building was sold in 2005 to an investment company for $200 million dollars. It may be converted to high end apartments.
So far, this is just a rumor. I would not be surprised. Selling high end apartments in New York is a very popular way to make a lot of money, and there seems to always be people looking for a piece of the city.
