Buildings Seen From My Roof

The non-famous ones. I have a nice view of the Empire State Building and One World Trade, but I’ve posted lots of shots of those. These aren’t the prettiest. Just the ones that caught my eye this afternoon. First up, a Jenga-style building. Not my favorite. Look at all the construction around it though.

Next, whats-his-face’s building. Jesus. What is his name?? Nope, not coming. Because I’m OLD. Had to google it. Julian Schnabel. Who is also old. Sorry, Julian. It is what it is.

I mean, they’re okay, but … eh. Also not my favorites, but I do like the lines they make.

I noticed there a number of buildings with structures that look like belfries in my neighborhood. What are they really used for? I want a belfry. And bats. Ever since one came into my apartment I’ve been love with bats. I watch videos of them on YouTube all the time. They are the sweetest things. “Where’s Stacy?” “Up in the belfry with her bats.”
