The Whale's backbone

Whale Square

Another iconic building located on 53rd street by the water is called Whale Square. Whale Square was the headquarters of the Whale Oil Petroleum Company built around 1948. (Side note: WOPC sold fuel oil, not whale oil)

My company occupied a space in this building for 22 years. This place is where I developed an eye for photography.
