  •   truschool @abresler I did a hash tag search on (contractor) and you came up. I'm looking to network with business owners like yours. I'm a broker for Protect America Security. The company is running a huge promotion until this Friday the 16th on home security systems. If you could send any leads to me we could work something out for you to be compensated on each one. If its of interest lets exchange contact info and if not then thank you for your time. P.S. I'm also an event coordinator in Foxwoods Casino in CT and if that is of any interest to you we could do an event to display your work 12mon

abresler One more for my favorite Art Deco building in the world! #Chrysler_Building #393_Lexington_Avenue #Office #Building_Buddy @BLDGBUDDY #Architect #William_Van_Alen #Built #1930 #Size #1035287_sf #77_Stories #Developer #Chrysler_Automotive #Owner #Tishman_Speyer #Abu_Dhabi_Investment_Council #Ground_Lessor #Cooper_Union #Anchor_Tenant #Major_League_Baseball ; This #midtown #landmark is possibly the most iconic #skyscraper in #Gotham - for just over a year she was the tallest building in the world. This building who at one time had over 3000 construction workers on site contains 3,862 windows, 20,961 tons of structural steel, 391,881 rivets, and 3,826,000 bricks. She is truly an amazing work of functional art and one my favorite buildings! 1y
