Metropolitan Life Tower, Eleven Madison Ave. NYC

Completed in 1909, and located on Madison Ave, NYC, the Metropolitan Life Tower was the tallest building in the world until 1913. Elements of a few of its intriguing designs were photographed by me a few years ago from nearby Madison Park. My son Steve and I, with several hundred people, were enjoying a wonderful concert there with singer/songwriter Lucy Kaplanski …until the in-ground watering sprinklers popped up and activated, in some cases under people’s blankets.

Thanks for viewing and comments are always welcome. M πŸ™‚

  1. Oh wow- I LOVE Lucy Kaplanski. I am also a fan of John Gorka who she used to sing with on some of his songs. Beautiful capture of the Met Life tower- and what a story with the sprinklers! πŸ™‚

      Wikipedia has good info about the fascinating history of this building including the large clock seen above, in the 2nd image. I believe there are identical clocks on each side. Thanks for the comment. M πŸ™‚
