Conspiracy, Chrysler and Chimneys! (NYC #2)
You’ll remember our list of sights we wanted to see when we went to New York? (NYC #1)
Well, we had some more to search for.
Obviously we wanted to see the Chrysler Building. It is usually part of any credits of films or TV shows that include New York because the ‘Art Deco’ features have put it into the icon class of NYC buildings. As with many of the ‘must see’ buildings you have to get higher to see them as from the ground they are just another block.
In this picture, you can just see the gargoyles below the crown. They were modelled on various parts of Chrysler cars. It was the tallest building in New York when it was first erected but soon lost that title when the Empire State building was put up.
The reason for showing you this rather crooked photo was to share another on our ‘must see’ list – those red and white chimneys behind the spire. They can often be seen in films and one especially was ‘The Conspiracy Theory’ starring Mel Gibson and Julia Roberts. It is a silly bit of nonsense about someone suffering from induced OCD who ends up there.
The chimneys are actually part of one of the many power stations which is situated near the Queensboro Bridge. So, another on our list ticked off! More to come!
Now you can’t have missed the ‘C’s in the title. That is because over at Jenny Matlock’s Alphabe-Thursday has reached that letter.
Do pop over and see what the others have Come up with!
