Photographer's Note

Dear TE Friends

I visited NYC first time last Februray, and I was fascinated by all the skycrapers and huge buildings there. The most famous is of course The Empire State building, which was built in the year 1930. It has an obvservation deck where people can stand and overlook the beautiful city while the sunset hugs the buildings..a magnificent scene indeed.

Quote from Wikipedia: "It stood as the world's tallest building for more than forty years, from its completion in 1931 until construction of the World Trade Center's North Tower was completed in 1972. The Empire State Building is the second tallest skyscraper in the Americas (surpassed only by Chicago's Willis Tower) and the 11th tallest in the world. It is also the 4th tallest freestanding structure in the Americas" Unquote.

PS: sorry about the date/time stamp. Any idea on how it can be turned off?
