Love your photo! For many years I stayed at the Palace hotel with that EXACT view of St Patrick's and that lovely roof garden, (what's the name of that building??)
My trips always involved the Piers or the Javits and on those warm August days all I wanted to do is go to that roof garden and pool.
Love your aesthetic and your never ending variety of posts.
