Sunset over skyscrapers. Midtown, New York City.
After weeks of very temperamental hot weather here in New York City, today was uncharacteristically beautiful. In addition to the cooler temperatures, the sun made a dramatic withdrawal from the sky leaving behind beautiful purple and orange hues in its wake.
This particular view is looking out over Bryant Park and the New York Public Library at the various skyscrapers that line the park. When the sun descends, the street lights pop on and many skyscrapers cast their glow onto the streets below. It’s one of my favorite times of day.
The skyscraper on the far right is the second tallest building in New York City. Designed by Cook+Fox Architects, it is one of the most efficient and ecologically friendly buildings in the world (so far). “The design of the building makes it environmentally friendly, using technologies such as floor-to-ceiling insulating glass to contain heat and maximize natural light, and an automatic daylight dimming system. The tower also features a greywater system, which captures rainwater for reuse. Bank of America states that the building is made largely of recycled and recyclable materials. Air entering the building is filtered, as is common, but the air exhausted is cleaned as well.” Source
