I can see this building a thousand times and every time I still marvel at it. It's a beautiful piece of the Manhattan skyline, just iconic and beautiful to behold. It never gets old. I love walking by it and just taking it in.

Seeing this building lit up at night and during the day, it's a beautiful iconic part of the NY skyline. It's architecture is stunning. You can look at the foyer if just a tourist which has some beautiful decor. Have a look if you can.
