We went to an engagement party today
for my sister and her soon to be husband
at a friend's penthouse apartment.
Oh the life!
She has a 360 degree wrap around porch!
I know, I hate her too....
Except, she is just much, much too lovely and generous to hate.
And, let me tell you, the inside is just as
nice as the outside.
(Maybe I can try to pull a Selby and get her to let me shoot it???)
For those of you in NY,
you know how special this is,
you West Coasters are just going, what's the big deal dude?
And then you trot out into your yard and pick a fresh grapefruit
and an avocado for your breakfast.
We hate you too!
So, enjoy these views from the top!

I believe this building was built just before the Crash of '29.
Nice details in the brickwork.
This arch is probably 15 feet high.
Nice terra cotta details too.

The clouds were perfect, but BOY was it windy!
I wish I could make my horizontal shots bigger....
Click on it if you can.
