An unusual sight, but worth mentioning, though I could not go inside , it was an amazing sight even from the vehicle we were travelling, worth seeing it due to its unusual shape.

Well, it just looks like all the pictures you've seen of it. Just a building but I absolutely had to have my own pic ! The area is really nice so enjoy a nice stroll around while you're at it :-)

Yes, we have all seen countless photos of this iconic building...but you have to take your own! A tip...like us, get the photo that includes the listed clock tower in the foreground.

One of the classic NYC landmarks. Not fantastic but something to scratch off the list. The adjacent Madison Square Park is nice as well.

This is one of those famous buildings that you have seen dozens of times on TV and the big screen and it did not disappoint in person. The detail in this building is amazing and you could sit and study it for hours. The street leading down to Union Square Park has so many other fabulous buildings in it so... More

It's worth walking past this building and seeing it in reality. There's a nice park, Madison Square Park, across the road.

Whenever i see a movie or show that plays in NYC they show this building. So to be there right in the middle of NYC and see the building live was pretty amazing. Love the idea of a building in that shape. Great architecture!
