One for MacLeod, I hope. The opposite of a "Where is...?"

Near the Waldorf, what is the unusual round building on 3rd & 53-54, and the twisted-looking building between them? No clues on Google Maps.

Oops!! I meant one for McMaster, the Master of Search, not MacLeod.:whoa:

I'm still looking for the buildings, but here is a view of the skyline.

By the way, the Waldorf is Park Ave., between 49th and 50th

Thanks, McMaster. I don't read German. I guess in spite of its grand design, the oval bldg is just an office bldg.

Rotated the "twisted" bldg on GE and attached file --is this just a bad stitching job of 2 photos? LOL--I live much closer to the city than you.:lol:

You can switch the language to english on the upper left corner, then you can read the sites. ;)
