I travel to NYC about twice a week from Long Island. Usually I am headed to midtown Manhattan. I see the Empire State Building and Chrysler Building all the time. Unlike some people whom I notice, I am not jaded by these iconic structures and always take a moment to look at each. They are beautiful testaments to the building of NYC into the city it is today: great, solid and beautiful to my eye and the perceptions of many others, as well. On a recent trip to Greenpoint, Brooklyn I had the opportunity to see these favorite NYC landmarks from a different vantage point: across the East River. They looked as stunning and statuesque as ever. www.ellenfisch.com
