^ One day one of us is going to be buried there ... but most buildings and skyscrapers in New York will outlive us. It's really an eerie feeling when you think about it ... we'll be long-gone, but manmade monuments like 1WTC, ESB, Chrysler, 432 PA, Steinway, 2WTC, Nordstrom and Co. will still be standing proud.

The buildings kinda look like gravestones. Maybe it signifies how so many people spend their lives in mundane cubicles and forget to live a little.

A lot of those 60s buildings have really nice geometric shapes at the top. This one sticks out among the pre-War grand dames on Park, but it looks great.

They done a really good job repairing the MetLife building, you can hardly see the damage done by Godzilla in the late 90's.

Tony Stark aided with the repairs.

Now that the glass installation on the top row of windows has started this building becomes truly T/O. It looks magnificent when it has windows 'til the top. A true masterpiece of architecture, unlike any in the city. Bravo New York
