This is the Upper East Side's skyline. I've noticed lately in hotel rooms that you cannot open the windows very wide. I was standing on top the window ledge taking shots through the tiny crack of open window.
This photo reminds me of an old postcard that you might find in one of those cool, neighborhood book shops.
