Everest

GE Building

"To him, content as he was to live on a small scale, New York seemed formidably big, remote, and inhuman, and he assumed that it could be conquered only at a great risk. He was impressed by what he thought of as my courage in venturing so far afield; at once, characteristically, he set about assisting me in my assault upon Everest."
Brendan Gill, Here At The New Yorker
