Nice shot of a famous skyline. The perspective really does show the difference in height between the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Tower. The tallest building until the former was built.

I went up it about a year a go. Boy was that first elevator fast!

Well, this shot is definitely a CLASSIC! You don't know if this shot was in the middle of the 20th century or at present.
