Three Icons, Two Landmarks

1) Bank of America Tower; 2) Chrysler Building; and 3) The United Nations Building


Taken from Gantry State Park in Long Island City just below 42nd Street so that these buildings align. The blue sky quickly vanished that day as storm clouds came in pretty quickly. I like this shot as you can see the renovations currently being done on the U.N. I also like the exposure of the Bank of America Tower (it becomes so bright that it is hard to perfectly expose the shot unless its well-timed).

Of course, I am always looking out for great private rooftops or unique public locations and if anyone knows of any please contact me via flickrmail or
