This is New York

Shot from the top floor of 14 Wall St. J P Morgan (the person, not the bank) used the entire floor as a piet de terre.

Wonderfully surprised by the renovation of Alice Tully by Diller Scofdio + Renfro and FXFowle. Is it a shark or a ocean liner? Interiors and sound quality were great too. I heard Alarm Will Sound, Bang on a Can All-Stars, and Steve Reich & Musicians.

This sign was found in the bathroom of the 31st floor of One Chase Manhattan Plaza. The typography is mesmerizing.

    Yes, it was. Apparently, he bought the entire the floor because it over looked the offices of a competing bank.
