Urban Geometry

Various angles of one of the more futuristic looking buildings in Midtown. Though I guess that since it's been around for over 25 years it's not so modern. Late 20th century modern perhaps. In case you didn't know, the building in front is the Citicorp Center. It's 59 stories and is 915 feet tall. This midtown landmark building has 1.3 million square feet of office space where Citicorp desperately tries not to lose all your money. The top of the building has a distinctive triangle shape and was designed to be a massive solar panel, but that never happened.

The round/curved building in the background is the Lipstick Building, best known now as the building where Bernie Madoff had his offices.
