New York - Whats your favorite building?

Hi everyone! One of my favorite cities in the world is New York, I love the older buildings especially. What is your favorite building? Mine is Flatiron building.

My favorite building in NYC has to be be The Dakota, I just love everything about it but when it comes to some of the more recent buildings erected in NY I would say the Bank of America tower takes the crown

I have so many favourites. The Flatiron, Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, Woolworth Building, BoA ... the list could just go on forever!

Haven't been to NY yet, but from what I've seen with pictuers I'd say BoA Tower.

The Woolworth Building is beautiful.

I also love the Chrysler Building and the Dakota. Even though John Lennon was shot there.
