Central Park South

This is the skyline of Central Park South, above the tree line so the buildings you see are probably the 5th floor and up. Directly across the street from these buildings is the southern border of Central Park.

So which floor do you live on?

I like this vantage point.The dark leaves on the trees are very wintry looking
& I can tell you I don't think I would mind living in any one of these buildings on any floor!
I live in a very old small house with an upstairs and a downstairs.

I'd want to be a little mouse to see inside these apartments...But no mice here maybe? What do you think, Ming? ;-)

The proverbial 3 bed semi in surburbia with garage and garden. That is I do this week but soon it could be a cardboard box. Partner been axed at the BBC. Cheery eh! The image does have that coll crisp winter chill feel.

I live on the top floor ;)

I love pictures of building tops like this one. They make you dream, and they often draw attention on details otherwise ignored. I live on the third floor - just the right height for me, not a big fan of heights.

The clarity of this picture is breathtaking. When we were in NY we stayed in a hotel that overlooked central park and it was beautiful.

Nice skyline. I just took some photos on Central Park West. I like the buildings there. I live on the 4th floor of a 6-story building. I like that. ;-)

2nd floor, Ming.
But I bet the view from these windows is so much better than mine!

I live on the top floor of a three-flat in Chicago, but from about age seven on, I've always thought the ideal way to live was in a high-rise doorman building. The brief time I did so made me realize I was absolutely right.

2nd Floor, but I have water views so I think that compensates for my lack of height.

The sky is white in NY!!
I live in a 7th floor, but I'd love to live higher!
And you?

i live on the second.

there's something about living on the ground floor that scares me and makes me feel vulnerable.

Well Ming, what do you think? The top s'il vous plait! What a great photo you have here. Your eye and that new camera are taking some great photos my friend. Bravo!

We live on the firs floor of a four storey '900 building. It's very handy when you have to walk out the dog quickly!

I live on the one and only! ;o)

I was married briefly to a doctor who used to have an office on CPS. As of 2006, he was still working parttime from an office in the West 50s.

I married him when he was a resident in training, so never shared in the view, and I don't know what floor he was on.

Last NYC address was:
201 East 28th Street
"The Chesapeake"
Apt. 14-F
I wonder who lives there now?

That apartment had a southern exposure, but you could see to the north from the rooftop. We took some 8mm film right after a snowstorm sometime in the mid to late 1960s. The PAN AM building is quite visible!

Peace, love and happiness,

Ellen Kimball
