Last time I stayed in the NY Palace Hotel, just didnt get a chance to take photos from the room for a variety of reasons, primarily because didnt come back to the room during daytime, lol. So this was a good time to take pics. Plus had a higher level room, so here goes. Not much to say about these photos but still will try to do so. Warning, quite a lot of pics in here…
Scrolling up 51st Street. Nice greenery, you dont notice it when you are on the ground but from here, there are quite a lot of green stuff around the city.
The windows are tall.
The top of the building is extraordinary. I keep on wondering, why would anybody dress all this up and make such intricate stuff? its not like anybody can see this from the ground level? That is at least 50-60 stories high.
Somebody has a lovely little roof, with a balcony, ivy covered roof, table and and and. Must be frightfully expensive. Not to mention hot, all those air conditioners blowing hot air towards you, lol. I wonder what is the building to the right? the roof looks very interesting.
The buildings have some antennae on the top. Surprisingly few buildings have them here in NY. I wonder why? Compared to other cities like Dubai, Mumbai, HK, London, etc. which are usually festooned with antennae and aerials, this city has very few.
The twin titted building in the morning
I used a panorama app in my iphone for this shot, looks weird, eh?
This wasnt from my room but from the breakfast lounge, overseeing St. Patrick’s Cathedral. This time we managed to get inside but that’s for later. Its an imposing building all right.
