He I was at the Grand Army Plaza. It was very cold and was snowing few minutes ago. The colors were tending to grey and I realy like it.
From here we can see the Apple Store (see last photo for details), the General Motors Building and the Squibb Building.
Grand Army Plaza lies at the intersection of Central Park South and Fifth Avenue in front of the Plaza Hotel in Manhattan, New York City. It stretches from 60th to 58th Streets between East Drive and Fifth Avenue.
The idea for such a plaza was first proposed by sculptor Karl Bitter in 1898. It was designed by Beaux-Arts architecture firm Carrère and Hastings and completed in 1916. The New York City Board of Aldermen named it Grand Army Plaza in 1923.

Today I can say this is very familiar place for me after my long trip around the States. Good title, I think you could make it in b&w version without some damage. Anyway, I like this presentation of Manhattan.
Best wishes from Russia,

I like this. It is not that easy to make good photos of this Plaza, but your framing is very attractive with all the grey and square elements in the building. I guess the weather was helpful.
