One of our conference rooms, looking south from the 25th floor.
From the 34th Street tenant’s entrance.
From 5th Avenue main entrance.
From the days when office workers "mailed" "letters." Now just a preserved relic of the Empire State Building. Until a recent facelift, these were hidden in hall closets. They might still be functional -- embedded mail boxes remain in service in the lobby -- but I'd only risk a postcard to myself to prove it.
I work at the Empire State Building, and so do these guys, and there's nothing you could pay me to do what they do.
It was photo shoot day. What’s it all about? You’ll know soon enough.
Our reception area: The fishbowl-like conference rooms provide lots of natural light.
I'm lucky to be on a floor with a terrace, and found myself out on it one day (Shhhhhh ...). This is a rare perspective from outside on the 25th floor, looking up.
Every sunset is wonderful, but some are more wonderful than others.
The money shot: ESB’s visitor lobby

Reception area, 25th floor
A corner office for everyone.
How foggy was it? You couldn’t see New Jersey.
Our latest perc (sorry for the bad pun): pour over coffee
This is a #BlastFromThePast: An old workspace when the edit team was smaller. There's something about workers outside, 25 stories in the air.
It was stormy today, but not as stormy as this day, which almost looked like tornadoes in the distance (they weren't)
OK, I'm a little obsessed with fog. Sue me.

Yes, we have a mini theater and yes, we have a Playstation.
It’s been a while. But if you spot me a couple of balls I’ll try not to embarrass myself.
