The Chrysler Building is as much a NYC landmark, but IT does not have a sign with an arrow. I wonder why? If Mayor Bloomberg happens to come into De La Concha, I’ll ask him.

I've always liked the Chrysler Building a great deal more than the Empire State, as architecture goes.

Of course. We all do!

But I'm fairly certain that there is a sign for the Chrysler Building, and it looks a lot like that one. However, it's not as close to the building itself as this one so obviously is. I think the Chrysler sign (at least one of them, because there could be more) is along Lexington... a little bit up from the Grand Central Terminal entrance.

That's good to hear. Just because I didn't see it doesn't mean it isn't there!

Yes, much more elegant. And that Art Deco look seems to wear very well over time.

wonderful shot. i have really enjoyed all of your photos and writing.

Thanks, glad I'm able to share.

As I admire your photographs, I'm thinking about visual metaphors. Do you use a lot of them in your photos? And what exactly are they? *pondering*

P/s: I guess more tourists to NYC would want to know where the Empire State building is more than the Chrysler building?? lol

I'm growing more and more convinced that the decisions on which subject to pick, how to frame it, and so on are as much driven by the subconscious than your esthetic sense. Which is precisely like a dream. It's a coded, wholly metaphorical message your subconscious is sending to you. If you think about it long enough, you finally see what the message and its meaning is. Kinda spooky to look back at some image taken on the fly without much thought and there, you suddenly see, is a representation of some deep psychic wound, or loss, or longing. I try to keep completely open, and never hesitate to take a shot.
