I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

To the right, the Time & Life and Exxon buildings, neighbors on Sixth Avenue at Rockefeller Center, in New York.

The Exxon building is the "x" in what are called the XYZ buildings, three monolithic, much-derided office buildings that sit in a row across from the setbacks and Art Deco friezes of 30 Rock. I like their verticality, though, the way they grab your eyes and urge you to look up to where they square off against the sky.

Here's the afternoon light adding some texture to the stripey windows.
