    I am glad you didn’t make us wait for the answers to the initial question–I was clueless about which buildings these were. Cool way to introduce a subject.

    I got . . . none.


  4. Sherri says:

    what curious peaks
    I wonder about the purposes of these unusual antennas


    • mvschulze says:

      Potendono; All except the Chrysler Building are or have been major antennas for broadcasting Television, (and many additional transmitting forms,) as they in most cases were the highest points in the city. When the twin towers were completed in 1971, most TV broadcasting switched from the Empire State Building, but of course they fell in 2001. Today the major broadcast antennas are on a building in Times Square, NYC. You should come visit someday. Love YOUR images. M 🙂
