Empire State

Not the first time I've shown the Empire State Bldg.,
but I took this from the window of a friend 

(who lives about 40 blocks south) the other night and 
was struck by how beautiful it looked in the "blue hour."
Right after I took this shot, they lit up the top—
with green lights (but I like it better like this).


  1. What a great view. I feel like I am right there with a ringside seat.

    I was going to say, “Now this is a view of the Empire State Building I could look at for 8 hours and 5 minutes.” But I have never seen this so I can’t really criticize Andy (backhandedly by complimenting you), can I?

  2. I wish I was there, in the blue hour.

  3. Pointy-topped doodad! It's lovely, Alexa.

  4. The Empire State building makes me think of my grandfather, who took me there every single time we visited New York. A very beautiful photo in "l'heure bleue".


Thanks, merci, grazie, danke, hvala, gracias, spasibo, shukran, dhanyavaad, salamat, arigato, and muito obrigado for your much-appreciated comments.
