50 UN Plaza

An elegant addition to the City’s skyline by Foster + Partners; an architecture and design practice responsible for a number of innovative and groundbreaking structures around the world, such as the Gherkin and the Millennium Bridge in London or the marvelous Reichstag Dome in Berlin – not to mention Spaceport America in New Mexico or the Lunar Habitation on The Moon (albeit in a 3D printed version only; for now)!

Christmas all year round

During the walk, I keep thinking that some people don’t have to wait for Christmas. Behind me and all along the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, there are apartment buildings with large windows and balconies. The lower level ones may be less lucky but those higher up enjoy this glorious unobstructed view day-in day-out.
