One Response to PPLD Historic Photo of the Day, 10/22/10: Empire State Building at Dusk

  1. jim hunter says:

    beautiful shot! Looks as if it were taken from “The Top of the Rock” (30 Rockefeller Center). Notice that there are tall buildings around the Empire State Bldg, and tall buildings in the Wall street area beyond, but none in between. The reason:there is bedrock near the surface of midtown and downtown, but not in between, so there is nothing upon which to anchor tall builgings.
