When I googled his name to learn more, I came across this interesting piece of research, which was stimulated by the writer's visit to this statue.

Crystal is a lawyer with a financial planning and estate planning practice. We have been friends for 18 years. I was paired with Crystal for some trust building exercises at Outward Bound in Colorado. Later, we both rode in an early morning bicycle group back in Hartford. I dropped out when I took a job in Ohio, but Crystal still rides. The biking is over for this year -- too dark in the morning -- but I think I will rejoin next spring.
We ran into each other last weekend in Elizabeth Park.

This photo was taken from a bridge across the Connecticut River, looking back at the Hartford side of the river. We see the Connecticut Convention Center, the Marriott hotel and the Connecticut Science Center, and the Travelers Tower. In the foreground is the amphitheater stage.
A daytime view from the opposite shore is here.

The Gold Building is in the center of the downtown Hartford. It is the worldwide headquarters of United Technologies, a huge global aerospace company. At certain times of the day, the sun reflects off the gold glass onto its neighbor, the classic building at 750 Main Street.
I have shown this effect before, but whenever I am roaming the downtown on a day with good light and see the building shimmering in gold, I have to take another picture.
