I love this shot as well.

Photolith -- I realize you took this picture awhile ago, but do you, by chance, recall which two buildings are featured in it?

The one on the right is the Carlisle building built in 1906. I don't know what the other one is but it's one of America's oldest skyscrapers most likely. Looks like it was built in the late 1890s.

Thanks for the information.

Using Google Maps and The Carlyle as a point of reference, I was able to determine that the building in the left of the picture is simply known as "The Bank Tower." It was built in 1902.

Here's a link with a bit more information:
