Today we visit New York City's Carnegie Hall which is one of the last large buildings in New York built entirely of masonry, without a steel frame. Originally built in 1891, the exterior of the Hall was updated around 1900 with several marquees being added to the front entrance. A few years later, city building codes required the addition of the fire escape in this image. The fire escape spans the entire Seventh Avenue façade. When I was composing the shot of the Hall, I was taken by the late afternoon sun hitting the fire escape and decided to change my composition to that of the fire escape rather than the the whole facade.
