The W.R. Grace Building and the Chrysler Building - Midtown - New York City
Looking down 42nd Street next to Bryant Park toward the W.R. Grace Building and the Chrysler Building.
This is one of my favorite distant views of the Chrysler Building.
The sloped building in the foreground is the W.R. Grace Building which was designed by Gordon Bunshaft and completed in 1974. In 2007, the Grace Building was featured in the 2007 Marvel Comics motion picture Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. The Silver Surfer, pursued by the Human Torch, surfs down the south face of The Grace Building, imploding windows in his cosmic-energy wake.
