Hi Sam from NYC!
Posted by iheni on September 6, 2006
I am very proud to be the first to send you greetings from across the pond. I brought the very same sign that Henny took to the Arctic with her and took it all the way to New York City! From left to right, the three main buildings behind me are:
1. The Empire State Building, once the tallest building in the world and famous for being climbed by that giant ape King Kong
2. The United Nations, the building where every nation in the world sends people to try to work out our problems (busy place)
3. The Chrysler Building, the tallest building in the world before the Empire State Building and known as the greatest example of Art Deco style skyscrapers it was designed by William Van Allen, with whom my father worked as an apprentice
This is only a small sampling of the NYC skyline and only the beginning of the places I intend to say Hi to you from.
