The Helmsley Building
From my walk to work this morning, here's a couple of shots of the Helmsley Building, one of the three buildings parked squat in the middle of Park Avenue. (The other two: The Pan Am /Met Life Building and Grand Central Terminal. These two tunnels (below) re-emerge on the other side of the Helmsley as an elevated platform that wraps around both sides of the Met Life Building and rejoin in front of Grand Central. The city is presently building a bomb barrier all along the portion of Park Avenue that borders the terminal. The jackhammering has been almost nonstop for several months and us'ns up on the high floors are getting mighty tired of it. I can't imagine how bad it must be for the folks closer to street level.
