The Empire State Building might have been superceeded in height but it is still highly recogniseable.
Great lines and depth.
It is a gritty shot, I mean that it is like a "Rocky" kind of building, as in Yo, Adrian.
Iconic.But not ironic.I need a gin and tonic.
I never fail to see a water tower in virtually all shots of the city skyline.
Nifty, Daryl. I love the contrast between all the verticals and the horizontals and then the jagged drippings on the roof's edge of the near building...
Love to see that beautiful old building in the middle of that glass monstrosity and the construction.
Love the idea of the High Line. Wish I could visit it. great views.
Always nice to start the week with a city view! Great capture.
I love water towers! Nice banner. Gee, that looks familiar! LOL
like this very much...awe..some capture ms. daryl.
I need a visit to the High Line and I am laughing at your husband and Sully joke on your sidebar:)Joyce
I love what judi said - it IS a gritty shot, and that is perfect for NY
Can. Not. Wait.
Great lines and depth Daryl.Can't wait to visit N.Y!Have a great week.Anna
You do these so well. The play of light and dark, the intersecting lines, the shadows, the tall vs. the short...It really works well, Daryl! Just superb!
that's a great shot of the empire state!? taken from a plain roof top...no frills, this is what it is, and it looks fine to me...if only I were there..a cagoule..is a rain jacket favoured by walkers and those who live in wet? areashttp://www.upandunder.co.uk/images/notes/contractcag.jpg
What a great shot! Basic yet appealing...Nice!
the greyness of the cityscape does not take away the grandeur of the empire state buildingwell composed shot!
love the roughness of the city.

Nice subject. Great shot.Made me remember NYC.Regina
I like the view! I would never sleep if I lived there . . . so much to photograph . . . so many angles and light plays.
I love the layout of the black & white, but love it even more all art-y in your header!
Wonderful shot! I really need to do some black and white shooting!
The Empire State Building gives the photo a sort of crown, if you will...peeking out, saying "here I am".I also like the dribs of color washing down on the building on the left.
Yet another amazing shot Daryl. :)
Ideal for monochrome - lots of vertical and horizontal lines - nice perspective.
I imagine looking at the famous Empire State Building becomes an everyday - not really noticeable - sight - much like looking at the Rocky Mountains or the ocean every single day.Still - for those of us who don't get to see any of this regularly - it is an amazing sight.
Looks like a shot from an old movie. I remember standing on the deck at the Empire State building about 20 years ago. What a thrill. My one and only trip to NYC. :)
So many contrasts - texture, size, shade... Not a standard view!
A great shot with lots of different angles and shades.
Great photo, as usual! I love your vision of the city.
Wonderful view because it's so different.
nice! however, I like the header rendition even more!
I must admit that I've never seen the Empire State Building from this angle. You live in such a photogenic world.
I don't see it. I don't see your siggy.I'd like a gin and tonic, too, please.
Can't WAIT to see that! And do get Kate a G & T when you see her. She obviously needs one...or two... ;-)
Nicely done in monochrome fitting the cityscape perfectly :)
Wha a great shot.. and perfect how you've played with it for your header. Love it!And congrats on David's POTD. :)

That's a stunning shot. I also enjoyed your toon in the next post.
Love this shot! Wish I could visit!
Lovely monochrome. I really love it and it reminds me of the times before colour photos (except for the very rich)Congratulations on POTD mention.I also liked the cartoon!
Here from Davids POTD for which mucho congratulations. I love this shot and monochrome is so...moody and Deco.
Love the contrast between the stateliness of the background and the grit of the foreground. Distance hides dirt, I tell ya.Nice one!
wow. incredible shot. truly worthy of the POTD mention!
This shot truly is all about New York City. Well done, and congrats on the POTD.
Your blog is superb! Congratulations on POTD:)
And now I am back to congratulate YOU!!! Well done!!
Glad I followed the POTD link.
Lots of contrasts here even in monochrome. Great shot Daryl!Congrats on the POTD mention.
great shot from an arty angle
Did I tell you how much I like the new header? this reminded me.
Interesting contrasts in textures. This shot wouldn't be nearly so fine in color...
