Creiger over at the Hungry Hyaena provided the above pictures on his blog as part of his larger commentary about the changing times. The photos were both taken from his East River facing office. the original of the bottom photo can be seen in its full size version at Flickr. I though they were worth showing here as this is a photographic angle of the construction we rarely see. Mostly we see Tram of 59th Street Bridge views.
My apologies as I just realized I mispelled Creiger's name in the photo image.
