Fifth Ave., 1964

Another great '60s view of New York City. The Tishman Building is 666 Fifth Ave. The Top of the Sixes was a popular restaurant in the penthouse, and I recall a family dinner or two at the Sixes to commemorate high school graduations c. 1970. St. Thomas Episcopal Church in the foreground. Top of the Sixes became a cigar bar, as I read here.

Off in the distance to the far left you can see the Empire State Building. This view today would show many more skyscrapers off to the west, and less sky.
