Thursday Challenge—"modern"

Last week on my other blog, I showed a
picture taken from up near the top of this skyscraper
where I used to work.  The 46-story Hearst Tower
was completed in 2006 at a cost of $500,000,000;
it was constructed within the shell of the original
Hearst Building—which has landmark status.
That one, finished in 1928, cost $498,000,000 less
(and there's pretty much all you need to know
about inflation and NYC real estate).

And since it's the 1st of the month, I've posted to my Paris blog.]


  1. That's a lot of glass. I'll look out for it next time I'm in NYC.

  3. oh how beautiful if we want to say a skyscraper is.All that glass is beautiful look for a picture. I would be a little nerveous I am afraid to go up that high even in a elevator. Bravo for you to have worked there.

    I mean if your job is there. What choice do you have if the job is your experitise right.

  4. Great shot and lovely building - but I wouldn't want to be in it or near it in an earthquake!
