Majesty in the Metropolis (NYC, April 2008)

Sometimes, New York is full of majesty....

This gorgeous building is Manhattan's Metropolitan Life Insurance Building (The "Met Life Tower"), seen soon after sunset. The sky was a deep purple/blue and fog was dancing off the tops of tall buildings, bathing them in their own light. When this building was completed, in 1909, it was the the tallest building on Earth! It borders the east side of Madison Square Park which features an even more famous building on it's south side: The Flatiron Building (also, once, the tallest building on Earth).
