A lovely sweep to this composition, the low POV gives the eye the full impact of what the architect wanted us to see, a very imposing and dramatic buliding, the gateway giving the eye the chance to glimpse the real world outside. . . . . .or is it ? Love the figures in this to add to the sense of scale.
@MickeydelPilar replied: Agree with everything you've said, John...I was on 58th St snapping thss shot and the FedEx truck on the far side was on 59th St.

Scary but I have a similar shot but not from this building. Nice POV and color cast Michael. Well done!
Thanks for your nice comments to "Dazzling." Lorenzo
@MickeydelPilar replied: Thanks, Lorenzo and I'd be interested to see your building shot...I'm sure it dynamic..

Thanks much, Mickey, for a splendid photo and description. I thought it was lens distortion, but the buildings were actually designed with an inward slant. Terrific concept. New York city was and I'm sure still is a vastly interesting city.
@MickeydelPilar replied: Yeah, that inward slant is a visually impressive and keeps me coming back to take more shots at all hours of the day and night...appreciate your comment, Charlie.

does a street actually go thru the middle or is that just a drop-off/turnaround
@MickeydelPilar replied: The street does go through but it is for drop offs or can turn around or go through if you have a delivery...pedestrians are allowed to pass through but not regular traffic.....

This is the Bloomberg Building in daytime with the 7 story atrium and courtyard before us which connects 58th St. to 59th St. The retail store entrance can be seen at the lower left, the two condo towers are behind us.

The building comprises a full city block between Lexington and Third avenues and 58th and 59th streets. The complex features two towers constructed above a steel office and retail section, separated by a seven-story atrium.[2] The design of the courtyard at One Beacon Court, which connects 58th and 59th streets, was inspired by other historic New York enclosures, like Grand Central Station, the reading room of the New York Public Library and the skating rink at Rockefeller Center. Glass walls curve around the perimeter of the courtyard, tilting slightly inward as they rise.[5]
