Yes, kids, it’s the Chrysler Building, as viewed from the sidewalk just off Bryant Park, on West 42nd Street. I love seeing it in context, hanging out with its friends. The photos people usually see of this spectacular building only show the building itself, without any of the other stuff that surrounds it. Tourists probably come here and are amazed to see that it doesn’t stand alone. “It doesn’t look that way on TV, in the opening credits of Sex and the City!” they probably whine in dismay.
Oh, and in case you’re wondering what’s at the very top of the building? It’s a bathroom. A single room bathroom.* With one of the best views in the world.
*And no, I am not, uh, “shitting” you.
