New York cityscape with Chrysler and tenement building

Cityscape of New York, looking towards Midtown and the Chrysler Building. On the right is the top floor of a 19th century tenement-type building. On the roof are cellphone masts. In the window a ragged curtain is tied in a knot. This is New York's Lower East Side. Viewpoint is the Manhattan Bridge.

I have subliminal memories of living in a New York tenement building. They probably come from my father's vivid accounts of living in New York from 1929 to 1930.
