After walking the Brooklyn Bridge, 3/27/95

 A follow-up from my previous post about the Brooklyn Bridge, found here.

Just off the Brooklyn Bridge, is the 40 story Manhattan Municipal Building,  on the National Register of Historic Places. A magnificent structure with intriguing interior design elements complementing its Beaux-Arts architecture, topped by columns and cupolas, and …an impressive guilded copper statue:  “City Fame.”

Back in 1995, I was fortunate to see these features up close, but as was typical for those days, my camera was out of film.

However, 15 years earlier, in 1980,  I had photographed the Brooklyn and Manhatten bridges from the World Trade Center, as seen below.

The Manhattan Municipal Building would be just out of view to the left, at about the same height as the white “former” AT&T building shown here.

 As usual,. thanks for visiting, and comments are always welcome. M:-)

    I just recently passed that building on the approach to the Brooklyn Bridge and wondered what it was! It is an amazing structure and I snapped some shots from the car as my husband was driving. Thanks for the information!
