Daily photographs by HANS VON RITTERN, with humorous, artistic and social commentary on life in the big city.

From the gallery: EMPIRE TWILIGHT

EMPIRE TWILIGHT: The Empire State building is one of the jewels of Manhattan. It can be seen from Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and New Jersey.  At night if you look up and stare at the building for a few minutes, you will see all these little  white flashes of light going off – those are the tourist’s cameras, it’s a funny and wonderful sight. In the daytime tourists try to  find spots on Fifth Avenue to get just the right angle. At night tour guides will take their guests to special spots to view this 1931 art deco marvel. But every once in a while, as you busily scurry through a neighborhood to and from an appointment, like here on West 28th Street, you get a wonderful surprise from one of the scarce empty lots we have left in Manhattan.  Look up and marvel!
