Gold Building

This is the Gold Building, home of United Technologies Corporation.  Among UTC's main businesses are Pratt & Whitney (aircraft engines), Hamilton Sundstrand (a variety of aviation and space products), Otis Elevators, Carrier (air conditioning) and Sikorsky Aircraft (helicopters).  See the helipad on the roof?

The Gold Building adjoins the Ancient Burying Ground, featured yesterday.  Quite a contrast, isn't it?

We have included your blog in our guide Around The World.

The guide is both a record of old blogs and a listing of new blogs. Although originally arising from the "City Daily Photo Blog" lists this is an independent publication. Inclusion here does not imply that a blog qualifies for nor is officially a CDPB. Our criteria are that photographs mainly from and related to a specific geographical location (not necessarily a "city" but usually more specific than a whole country or region) are posted at dated intervals (not necessarily daily) and archives are kept which are readily searchable by date.

Please keep us informed of any changes to your details.

That is definitely a contrast and would be something to see in person.

An impressive building and a strange contrast with the nearby burial ground.
