And so today I am sharing my photo essay on the Buildings of New York.
I imagine you all think of New York as being full of skyscrapers like this.
Here’s something a little different. It’s the Fashion Institute of Technology, smack in the middle of the garment district and it’s not a skyscraper!
Some of the buildings such as the Met Life Tower, even have surprises on top!
A lifetime ago when I was a student in New York, I would walk around the streets with my head up in the air! Oh I’d occasionally bump into people and things, but there is so much to see up on top, the bumps were worth it. Why would anyone not want to admire all this architectural beauty?
And St. Francis Friary is tucked in between more giants. But it holds its own among the faceless skyscrapers.
Can you guess what is housed inside this Corinthian neoclassical building?
No? Well it’s a Home Depot! I guess New Yorkers take their DIYing seriously!

Now what is the lesson we have learned today? Always look up! You never know what you might miss!
