manhattan midtown

I just got home from my 1st day in an actual Bareburger kitchen and I am exhausted.

I’ve been up since 6 am.

Left my apt in BK at 7am because the commute to Astoria takes forever and it’s the weekend.

Every fucking train I had to day was fucked because of weekend construction.

Ended up having to uber part of the way there because the train I was on was all of a sudden like “lol we’re going express all the way to ditmars”.

FUCK MY LIFE.

I have to be in Midtown West Manhattan at 7 am tomorrow. Lol.

Eating, showering, smoking and going to bed.

Since I have to be up at like 5 am. Lulz

Buildings under construction are the New York Hilton Hotel (William B. Tabler-Harrison & Abramovitz, 1963) at left; and the 45-story Sperry Rand Building (Emery Roth & Sons, 1963). The 42-story Equitable Life Assurance Building (Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, 1961) are at right. Above it is the top of 70-story Rockefeller Center’s R.C.A. Building (Associated Architects, 1933).
