Down just of Madison Square Park in the Flat Iron district of New York sits the Met Life Clock Tower, built in 1911, this skyscraper was at the time probably one of the tallest in the area of the city. Now it is dwarfed by the the nearby buildings especially the Empire State Building just up the road. I love the detail of the old buildings in Manhattan and how different each one was from every other built in the early 1900’s. I took this with my Nikon D5100 camera as I was walking past the building and just stop to admire this old work of art.
