The most prominent building on this photo, on the corner of E 23 Street and Broadway, is the famous Flatiron Building , a 22 story Beaux-Arts building completed in 1902 and characterised by its triangular shape with a sharp angle. To the right across the street of the Flatiron building you can see the International Toy Center, a 16 story renaissance revival office building completed in 1909.On the oposite side of the FlatIron building through the trees, you can the the Metropolitan Life North building and the Metropolitan Life tower (with the clock) being hit by the bright sunlight.  The Metropolitan Life tower was originally an office building for the Metroplitan Life Insurance Company which is now converted into a hotel. To the left of the Metroplitan Life Building is the Merchandise Mart Building, a 42 story international style office building completed in 1974. The tall building to the right of the Metroplitan Life tower is One Madison Park, a luxury residential condominium tower located on 23rd street between Broadway and Park Avenue.You can also see the entrance to Madison Square park, a 6.2 acre, 2.5 hectare, park in Manhattan, New York City.

The Gay Liberation monument, created by George Segal, is located in Christopher park in New York City. It honors the gay rights movement and the Stonewall riots that started the gay liberation movement.  You can see the Stonewall Inn, where the movement originally started, through a gap in the trees – it is a low building with all the rainbow flags.The sculpture is made from bronze and finished with a white-painted finished. Although the work was originally approved by 1982, it was only dedicated in 1992 due to a planned renovation of Christopher park, completed in 1985, and public opposition.
