Travel: Passing 34th

I walked south on 3rd, and came back on Lex. Passing 34th Street, I looked up and saw the iconic Empire State building. Used to belong to real estate magnate Harry Helmsley, and on his death, to his wife, the Queen of Mean, Leona. She’s long dead too, and I have no idea who owns the building now. The Helmsley name is also removed from the Park Lane Hotel, where my favorite Harry’s Bar is located.
