29. His apartment is near Macy's on 34th Street. His desk is in his bedroom. His desk is near three big windows. He sits at his desk. He looks east. He looks east toward the East River. The East River is about seven avenues away. But he cannot see the East River itself. Buildings block his view. Buildings in Manhattan are like trees in a forest. They are everywhere. They are beautiful. They are all different. He can see about 13 different buildings. The farthest building is almost three avenues away. Most of the buildings are about 12 stories tall. Most of them are light brown or dirty white. But the tallest one is completely red. White smoke comes out of its top. It has no windows on its west side. It has only red bricks. Maybe red bricks are cheaper than glass windows, he thought. Maybe it's a prison. 3.0
