The Citicorp Center stairway

Oil on canvas
18 x 24 inches

Today's eBay painting offering depicts the stairway of the Citicorp Center leading up from the subway. This midtown building, located on 53rd between Lexington and Third Avenues is one of New York's tallest skyscrapers. I watched this building as it went up and noticed that people loved to sit on these stairs during their lunch hour, soaking up some sun and visiting with co-workers and friends.

In the 1980's I went on to paint the new Citicorp building as it was constructed in Long Island City, facing it's sister building to the west.
