Clouds may gather, dusk may approach, people may whisper – the Empire stays true to its name.
For Day 4 of my B/W Photo Challenge, I show you the 360-degree views from the observation deck of the Empire State Building.
Seeking happiness among the concrete?
South view: downtown Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Hudson River, New Jersey. The Freedom Tower stands tall.

I link Sabiscuit for this challenge. Sabiscuit is an impressive blog.
