The View Down 42nd Street, in Midtown

Down 42nd Street
Photo by myself, at 42nd Street and 8th Avenue.

The view down 42nd Street is a modern one. There are just a few older buildings left on this street.

You can just make out the shiny spire of the art deco Chrysler Building, way over at Lexington Avenue. In the foreground, cars are parked on the roof of Port Authority Bus Terminal.

I had some real trouble deciding what to post tonight.

Another photo I had in mind involved a difficult subject, poverty. In the photo, an older couple are sitting outside, looking down on their luck.

Photography can be used to entertain or to educate. It can elevate your awareness of the world or smack you over the head with how difficult life can be. You can only convey one message with each choice.

I'll post the other image tomorrow. In the meantime, enjoy the view!

Great shot! Where did you stand to take it? I once stayed in a hotel on 42nd street, not far from here. It's a great central location. :)

Thanks Olivier!

Hi Valerie and welcome
ha, I like Midtown, too. There is a happening vibe to it.

Thanks Lazy Photographer and Washington!

Hi Lou
I was standing on a rooftop on 42nd Street. I used to work at an office there and dropped by for a visit.

I agree, it's a convenient location to stay. A little noisy though.
