Photo of the Day

This image I found on the Library of Congress site, if you've never been I highly recommend it.  I know this scene is in New York City, during the late 60's or 70's, but beyond that I just don't know.  The thing that is fascinating is the building second from the left,  why do the floors progressively get shorter as you ascend.  The windows  on top I would say is just a second set of windows for the 3rd floor, but why is there is a fire escape on floor 3 1/2 ???
