Shining in the sun

New York City building in the sun
I love how the New York City buildings get that sunny glow on beautiful, clear, crisp winter days. [Click the image to enlarge it, of course.]

This is the former MONY Building, 1740 Broadway, built in 1950 and designed by the same architects who designed the Empire State Building, some 20 blocks south. It’s only 25 stories, about a quarter of the height of its more famous cousin, yet it stands out quite clearly as one views it from the Broadway streets. And its 150-foot tower has always made it distinctive.
