Reflection on Madison Avenue

This photo was taken at the corner of Madison Avenue and 58th Street in midtown Manhattan. Madison Avenue, especially north of 60th Street is the prime shopping district for high end fashion goods like Ralph Lauren, Hermes and Versace. South of 60th Street, the avenue is comprised of mainly offices for big corporations and financial institutions.

So what is your plan for the three-day Labor Day weekend? I will be in Boston visiting with the family.

Ming, I just love this photo. The clean edges of this soaring skyscraper are what we all visualize when we think of NYC.

Amazing! Italian eyes see it absolutely stunning, just so different from our surroundings. Very Sex and the City.
It's no bank holiday here...! But we're scheduled to leave for London next tuesday and stay a week.
Have a nice break, good to go back home.

What a great photo!

I will be acting like a tourist in my own town, enjoying NYC when it's relatively empty.

Madison Ave. is too rich for my blood, too.
This weekend: beach, beach, beach!
Enjoy your visit to Beantown, Ming.

Prince Street seems to have more human proportions, while Madison Avenue is for disappearing behind a glass curtain. Have a great weekend, Ming.

Hi Ming! First of all many thanks for your comment on my post of 08.08.08 at 08h08 at Blogtrotter, now in Kos, Greece! It was great to read you there. Second, sorry for the long delay to come here, but August was a terribly busy month, as everybody else seems to be in vacation… ;))
Anyhow, I found sometime now to land here and enjoy your blog.
No Labor Day here, so no holiday; I'm still looking forward to having some vacation...
Great pictures of the Fanelly and Greeley Square!
Wish you a great weekend!

You see these every day, but to me these buildings are alien! Love the reflection anyway!

Your Labor Day weekend will just be a normal weekend for us poor long-weekend missing souls in Aus, LOL!
