sky watch friday - twilight on east 42nd street


I took this shot of the Chrysler Building at dusk last week as I headed to an appointment on the Eastside of Manhattan..


If you want to participate in Sky Watch Friday, head over to Dot's Strolling through Georgia and sign up or just check out the other bloggers!





And if you would all keep good thoughts for all those NIU students and their families affected by yesterday's tragedy; a very good friend is a student counselor at NIU

  4. Oh I so love the architecture of the Chrysler building and with it up against the sky like that it just looks stunning. My heart goes out to those around that horrible shooting in Illinois. My daughter went to school outside of Chicago for 3 semesters so that really affected me in a more personal way. Praying...

  6. Thank you for sharing a bit of the city with us.

    My grandson is at the USMMA on Long Island, at the site of the old Chrysler Estate. Chrysler has a real history in New York!

  9. This is wonderful. New York's many marvelous sign posts in the sky have claimed a place in my heart over the years. They capture the dreams of so many. God bless.

    And indeed my prayers are with those poor NIU kids.

  11. So beautiful! They just don't build buildings with style like that anymore...

    A friend of mine works at NIU in the building next to the one where the shooting took place and was evacuated... So tragic!

  26. i LOVE this shot. i hate admitting that it is a familiar building that i didn't know was the chrysler building. i will hang my head in shame. wait. i probably knew but forgot. yes, i prefer being forgetful to stupid any day.

  28. Well you all must come visit .. its such a beautiful city and its always being tinkered with .. buildings being torn down and rebuilt .. others that will always evoke memories of better times .. places 'landmarked' to preserve them for future generations .. why am I wasting this excellent prose in a reply .. it should be a blog and likely will be .. meanwhile DO come visit either here through my pix and prose or in person.. I would love to show you 'round!
