Midtown as seen from the Lower East Side (Grand Street). The building with the clock about 1/4 in from the right is Red Square on Houston Street. The building with the clock in the background about 1/4 in from the left is the Consolidated Edison building on 14th Street. The Tallest building is, of course, the Empire State Building. The gold-topped building in front of it is the New York Life Building and the gold-topped building to its left is the MetLife clock tower.
