Weekly Email 8-12-11 Chrysler Close Up

I have always wanted to be able to capture some of the City's tallest buildings close up.  We've all seen many angles of the great skyscrapers and I knew one day I would get a chance to get a bit closer.  This week I shot the Chrysler Building close up and it is an amazing structure.

I read that when they built it they put up about four floors a week and manually laid approximately 3,800,000 bricks and used 400,000 rivets.  It is still the world's tallest steel supported brick building and the third tallest in NYC.
