500 Fifth Avenue

Yesterday morning I snapped this pic of 500 Fifth Avenue, my third favorite office building in New York City behind the Chrysler and the Empire State. This 60-story beauty always has seemed like a giant Lego pistol to me. Unlike many others, I've never been a fan Mies van der Rohe's Seagram Building and the vast sea of featureless glass boxes that followed. (Hello, WTC.) I like minimalism, just not for buildings. Check out some great NYC buildings here. As for 500 Fifth Avenue, it's worth noting that it was designed by the same architects and completed in the same year as the Empire State.
