Mystery Building


I was walking in downtown Manhattan this weekend and I went past this building which was just being illuminated by the sun. I don't know its name though. I was walking with a friend and neither of us knew for sure. We thought perhaps the Woolworth building, but I'm not sure. Anyhow, maybe one of you knows its name? It looks like perhaps King Kong should be climbing it. Have a nice week everyone!
P.S. It looked like it would be in the Wall Street area.

Update: Mystery solved. It is the American International Group building. Thanks to Olivier from Evry Daily Photo for identifying it! Thanks also to DaveM from Everyone likes Pictures for trying to find it too.

Are we in a time warp now???

I've got no clue on the building, but I like how you've got it framed.

Good day Lori! I do not know the tower but I find splendid your way to photograph it.:)

Lori is it this? "Deutsche Bank just completed its purchase of the 47-story 60 Wall Street *tower from J.P. Morgan Chase, reports online database CoStar - climaxing Deutsche's long quest for a new Manhattan headquarters."

It's a great shot no matter what building it is. Great work.

JAM said...

I wouldn't have had any idea, but the upper portion does have a similar look to the Empire State Building.

a very beautiful shot
this building with the light and
this framework formed by the other building

Lovely shot with the sun hitting the top of the building...you know I think I did see King Kong...just for a moment, then he moved away.

Very nice framing on this one. I wouldn't have known the building but it looks like New York. Reminds me a little of the Superman movies or comics.
