Gotham City offers this up and it is cool to look at. Worth a quick stop for photos. Always nice to see from the Empire State or other tall buildings.

This is a great looking building that is very close and overlooks Bryant Park. Nice to take a picture of this building as its architecture is very pleasing to look at. This is a skyscraper that was built in 1924 and is now a hotel.
