Growing (NYC, January 2009)

If you stand on 14th Street, in New York City, across the street from Union Square Park and look North (towards the park) you get this view. On the left is the world famous Empire State Building (on 34th St.) which was once the world's tallest building, three from the left you see the New York Life Building (25th St, by Madison Square Park), which was also once the world's tallest building, on the right is a Flag pole with Old Glory flying proudly. Two from the left is one of New York's newest addition: a tall, skinny new tower also going up on 23rd Street near Madison Square Park (which is also home to the Flat Iron Building, once... also the world's tallest building). Interesting how these four elements line up almost perfectly from this perspective.
