Outside the Goldman Sachs building, a man blurs past.

One shot without that guy, just for clarity.

The gloominess, the darkness, and the warmth inside look good out here.

The wet glossiness from the few reflections in the darkness are just so arousing.

It's a classy looking entryway for the subway. Most don't have a roof.

The streetlamps make it all so very... Disney.

Cash Fur Gold is looking to utilize a background from another era in their press photos. Something gilded, vintage, reeking of money. I went walking around the Financial District at Midnight to see what I could see.

Mostly it was men in button-downs drinking Guinness, knocking back pints of Guinness and pissing in the ornamental shrubbery outside the Irish bars - reliving their highlight reel from the fraternity days, I guess. I saw enough of that in college so it didn't warrant any snapshots tonight.

But, like Cash Fur Gold said, the building at 85 Bond Street, home of America's beloved Goldman, Sachs & Co., was beautiful. The architecture at ground level has an imperial quality to it. The lighting, coming from rows of art deco spheres is just the streamlined style I like and really makes the scene work. I can't imagine the building looking as good in daylight.
