Bird's eye view
I was on top of the Rockefeller Centre yesterday with Mike Rawlinson looking at the scope of the wayfinding work he is leading for the city. The views from the top were truly beautiful and I was moved by the presence of the Empire State Building. It is silently and powerfully majestic.
Although a little hidden from view on the observation deck, the Art Deco Chrysler building also stands out as very graceful and beautiful. It was the world's tallest building for only 11 months before being superceded by the Empire State Building in 1931.
