Approaching the Cube – New York, New York

It was past 9pm, and I hadn’t eaten since a mid-afternoon snack. I looked around for a quick slice of pizza — nothing fancy. Not a restaurant but a neighborhood joint with comfort food was what I craved. Except, many were already closed — surprising for a city that supposedly never slept. I ultimately found two so-so slices.

Rejuvenated, I walked 15 minutes north to my next photographic destination on 5th Avenue. Do you recognize this place? It’s become a tourist attraction since it opened in 2006.

As I recall, this attraction was renovated three times, and the glass cube was simplified from its original design in 2011. In the most recent 2019 change, 18 sky lenses added light to the underground facility and acted as public seating and art in the plaza. There are nine sky lenses on either side of the cube.
