Nice moody shot, the building on the right looks somewhat like the NY flatiron building ( at least to me as a Belgium alien not all that aquainted with American architecture, safe for the works of F.L. Wright)
Both the Flatiron and the Morgan have a "pointy" corner. The angle between Broadway and Fifth Avenue at 23rd Street in New York, where the Flatiron is located, is only about 25 degrees, which gives the building its distinctive look. I almost couldn't believe my eyes the first time I saw it. But I got used to it - lived nearby at 6th Ave and 16th Street for a while. The angle between East Houston Street and Avenue E in San Antonio , where the Morgan is located, is about 60 degrees. Not so pointy as the Flatiron, but still pointy enough to catch the eye.
