J is for Jacob Javits

May 1990

The center, not the Senator, this black and white is of the green-glassed sprawl along the west side across from the railyards. I always liked using the way the panels of the I. M. Pei facade reflected the sky and skyline around it. Here the scene is the south-facing 34th street side with the setting sun glaring out from behind a cloud. Somehow those trees have weathered almost twenty years of diesel fumes from the fleets of motor coaches idling curbside.

What's also cool is that, from that angle, there's no evidence of skyscrapers and the like. If one didn't know the building, one wouldn't know it was NY and certainly not Manhattan.
