Empire State Building Photographer - How did this happen?

From the top of the Rockefeller Center Building, I took pictures of the Empire State Building and the fall colours in Central Park when I was in New York. Many hours had also been spent taking pictures from every possible angle on the beautiful Brooklyn Bridge, in front of the Chrysler Building, and at the Statue of Liberty. It was thrilling to do a photo shoot in New York City, which is the most famous city in the world and of the wonderful Empire State Building. It was a dream for photographers.

Whilst the Chrysler Building, which was also high up in the sky, was much more elegant, the Empire State Building ended up the tallest thanks to numerous additional tiers than originally planned. When it was finished, the Chrysler Building didn't win the race to be the tallest building. However, it is remembered and loved because the Chrysler Building chrome crown is a tribute to the Chrysler car. Even though it could be said that the Crystler Building is the more beautiful of the two skyscrapers, it is the Empire State Building that, as if to make up for its lack of design, covered itself in stories and became more famous.
