So here's two more pics I took while I was in NYC. These were taken from the Empire State Building observation deck, and I pretty much maxed out the digital zoom on my camera to get them. If you look closely at one, you can see somebody walking around up there, the lucky thing! And can anyone tell me what those huge fans up there are for? Are they used only for venting stuff out, or do they serve as air intakes? I'm also surprised at the use of so much brick on the roof of a modern office tower, it seems somewhat archaic. And that black roof itself- that must get some hot during the summer!
