I'm often offered the Watertower; usually, I politely decline...

Hmm, pretty good building for a free tract. I'd never given a thought to where there headquarters was or what it looked like.

Interesting. Had no idea they were still in business. Nice shot, to be sure.

Somehow, it looks like a set of paperboxes made into buildings (I think it's the light that creates that effect). I often see people offering the Watchtower at my subway station.

I used to see that sign a lot when I took the train to Brooklyn - wonderful photo.

Here I was looking for a watchtower by a railway - not a bible tract!
Great shot!
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

Wow. So that's where they come from! I'm often offered that magazine too, and like Roger, I always decline politely. Makes a good ABC post though!

WOW! They must have a ton of money to be located there!

I will admit, I just liked the sign and I wasn't even thinking of the publication when I first saw it!

EG: I understand they have moved their headquarters out of Brooklyn, but amnot sure if this building is still in use.
Anybody from NYC know?

Beautiful shot! I was thinking of old Watchtowers along the coast in Europe.
