Some midtown buildings from Union Square

I took this picture almost a year ago, while Martin and I were visiting NYC and at the same time discussing if we wanted or not to move here. It is still among my favorites; I love the light effect, the trees and the colors. For me, this picture is very representative of Manhattan with its mix of architecture styles.

You can recognize the famous Empire State Building. The second building on the right with the golden top is the beautiful Metropolitan Life Insurance Company Tower, a landmark skyscraper located on Madison Avenue across from Madison Square Park. The tower was constructed in 1909 and was the world's tallest building for three years, until 1913. It is now occupied by a hotel.
