This painting pictures old New York overtaken by the new. It looks down upon the once- towering New York Central (now Helmsley) Building—a vestige of flamboyant 1920s architecture now dwarfed by box-like modern high-rises, including the Pan Am (now MetLife) Building, the vantage point for this view.
