      Beautiful building, built at the same time and designed by the same people as the Empire State Building, you can certainly see the influence, or maybe this influenced its bigger brother, I love all the set backs, great photo!

      Thanks for the note; I really like this building too. I noticed the similarity to the ESB, but didn't know it was designed by the same people. I think I first noticed it from the observation deck of the ESB. It's very elegant, but doesn't seem like it's trying to call attention to itself -- I like that. :-)
