About “Reflected Sunset [2016-02-05]”
I face east, so I can’t generally see much of the sunsets. However, the Sun[1] sets a bit farther to the north or south each day, and due to the shifting geometry I can see reflections[2] of the sunset off particular buildings at particular times of year. The vibrant building at left is part of Columbus Square[3]. The tall building in the distance toward the right is 432 Park Avenue[4], currently the third-tallest building in the United States. It’s nearly three miles to the south. To the left of 432 Park you can see a bit of the triangular roof of Citigroup Center[5], roughly a quarter-mile farther off. Toward the bottom of 432 Park you can see the ornate roof of The Pierre[6]. The vertical-striped building behind The Pierre is the General Motors Building[7]. For another reflected sunset, but at a slightly different time of year, see “Reflected Sunset [2016-01-04].”
