America, America

"Oh beautiful, for ageless dreams, that reach beyond the years. Thine alabaster cities gleam, undimmed by human tears."

Perhaps not literally true, but as an American poet, I will always love those verses. I immediately thought of them, seeing this image.

Savoy Plaza

The building to the immediate right of the Sherry-Netherland, the one with the mansard roof and two chimneys, I believe was the Savoy Plaza, another luxury hotel. It was replaced by the sterile General Motors building, home to the CBS Morning News telecast. The previous comments are right, Midtown is a great place to live.

Yes

NYC is the greatest place in the world to live
