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.

I was always captivated by this beautiful structure.
