Monochromia: Central Park East

View from Wollman Rink of Central Park East NYC skyline

New York City’s Central Park provides some amazing views of the city that surrounds it.

This view from Victorian Gardens Amusement Park (the summer operation of the famous Wollman ice skating rink) captures the iconic and luxurious Pierre Hotel on the left, the General Motors Building in the middle (one of the few structures in Manhattan to occupy a full city block), and behind it, the 1396-foot residential tower called 432 Park Avenue.

At the time of its completion in 2014, 432 Park is the tallest residential tower in the Western Hemisphere and the third tallest building in the United States. It is the second tallest building in New York City, behind One World Trade Center, and ahead of the Empire State Building. It also boasts a $95 million penthouse!
