About This Image

One disappointment from my evening on the top of Rockefeller Center was that the vantage point on the Chrysler Building was not what I considered optimal. Later in my trip, I would discover that the view of the Art Deco Chrysler Buidling from the Empire State Building was much better, providing a great view of the pinnacle of the great building as seen here.

When it came time to edit my photos of that iconic portion of the New York City skyline, this particular angle over Manhattan was hands-down my favorite and there was some ineffable quality that made it feel like a timeless view. I know the Manhattan skyline is constantly evolving and changing, but this landscape view over the East River just felt like a classic slice of the proverbial Big Apple.

It was with that classic New York City vibe in mind that I decided to go for a classic or retro color photo feel. In matter of fact my original edit of this art printincluded textural layers to create a particularly worn appearance. But I shortly decided that I very much liked the classic color but preferred this particular image to be otherwise new, as if the print had been well preserved yet from a bygone time.

It’s kind of ironic taking photos of the Chrysler Building from the Empire State building considering they are old rivals of sorts. The Chrysler Building was the tallest building in New York City for only 11 months. It was the completion of the Empire State Building in 1930 that quickly stole that particular crown.

So, have you stood on top of the Empire State Building and gazed out upon that majestic skyline, too? If so, I bet this print takes you back to that moment.

How Can I Help?

At the end of the day, it’s important to me that you can put a face with the art you’re considering purchasing through my site. Aside from the print vendor who ultimately prints and ships your order, this is a one man show. The person who made the art is the same one who is typing this message and the one who will answer your questions if you drop me a note.

You are not a number and I care that you are happy with whatever art you might buy here. I’m here if you’d like to ask questions before or after purchasing. And I’m also happy to work with you where possible to customize the work you’re buying. Maybe you’d like a tweak to the shape of a print to fit in with your existing wall art. Or you’d like to add a little nod to someone special in it? Just ask! I also keep a running list of subjects I don’t currently have but people are seeking. So if you enjoy the style of my work but didn’t find quite what you were looking for, please do let me know.

I’ve been an artist for 15 years now and most of that time it’s been my full-time passion. And it matters to both the endorphins in my brain and the food I put on the table for me (and my cats) that you find the experience of purchasing the products offered here to be a pleasure.
