New York City Sights – The Empire State Building

By Brian | May 3, 2009 | Share on Facebook

Since last week’s NYC Sight was Ground Zero, former site of the World Trade Center (then the tallest building in New York), I thought this week’s should feature the current tallest building in New York, the Empire State Building.

And while my camera doesn’t do extremely well in low-light situations, I’ve always preferred to view the Empire State Building at night. The famous lights on it’s top section are often colored to reflect some city-centric event or holiday (blue for a Yankees’ championship, green for St. Patrick’s Day, Red & Green for Christmas, etc.). When nothing of import is going on, it’s white:

If you ever get the chance, walk south down Seventh Avenue in Manhattan from 35th Street to 34th Street. On your left, you’ll see Macy’s Department Store (the “largest store in the world”). As you walk past Macy’s and approach 34th Street, the Empire State Building appears in your view like someone opened a curtain at a Broadway theater. It’s very dramatic (moreso if you can imagine Also sprach Zarathustra in your head).
