This is a view from top of the stairs of the Cultural Education Center building on the south end of the plaza. Only three of the four identical modern building on the east side, and the Capitol on the north end can be seen here. The full name of the plaza is Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller Empire State Plaza, in recognition of his efforts to create it during his term as governor. The complex was built between 1959 and 1976, and covers 39 ha (98.4 acre) area in front of the Capitol. There is a lot to see there, beside the interesting architecture. Unfortunately a temporary structure is blocking full a view of a nice Calder stabile in the reflecting pool..

Your series from here is really brilliant, and gives me an image of my mind of almost a 3D tour of this site. Again, your composition is really nice, having depth by the point of view, and a very attractive range of colors. The little person in the foreground gives excellent scale, those buildings are huge!
All the best
