view from former workplace

I thought you might like to see the view from where I no longer work. (Yay!)

Lady Liberty in the distance

St. Patrick's Cathedral from the 44th Floor

Met Life (Pan Am) Building,
with the Chrysler Building peeking around the corner

lwork 011
A piece of Central Park,
with the George Washington Bridge in the far distance.
We live right near that bridge.

Good night.

It's been a long time since I've visited NYC and I didn't realize that the Pan-Am building had been renamed. And Met Life to boot. What a bitter pill to discover. I loved the look of that building when I was a kid--or maybe it was the candy shop in the lobby. And the Chrysler Building too.

It's funny, but I have this enduring fantasy of living in New York city. I am not sure I could leave that. But, then again, I have only visited and have never lived in the US. I guess that the two are quite different.

Utenzi: The Chrysler Building is one of the greatest - anywhere. Sheer magic. The Pan Am, well, I never liked it, it ruined the lines of Park Avenue - but hell, I liked it better as Pan Am, that's for sure! Sorry to give you the bad news.

ZF: Keep the fantasy alive. It's not an easy place to live, but so rewarding. I never thought I could leave either. It was 20 years before I could even think about it. And as you might know from reading wmtc, it's the only part of leaving the US that hurt.
