Flatiron Building. New York City.
Dusk is the day’s love letter to the night.
And as the night slow dances across the sky,
the city basks in the day’s memory
with blushing adoration.
This is a view of the Flatiron Building, one of New York City’s most popular skyscrapers. It was taken on a recent summer evening with the Sony NEX-6. I love this particular view at dusk when the city’s lights start coming into the view as the sky gradually darkens.
The early evening light really brings out the gorgeous red tones of the building that is directly next to the Flatiron Building in this view. The red building was the original Western Union building. It was built in the late 1800s and was initially connected via a series of tubes to the company’s original headquarters located 2 miles downtown on Broadway. The architect who designed it, Henry J. Hardenbergh, was the same architect responsible for the Dakota, and Plaza Hotel.
