The composition is dominated by low rise and high rise buildings set against an evening sky. In the immediate foreground one can make out the presence of figures coming and going. They are framed by illuminated low rise buildings also in the foreground; in the middle ground, another grouping of skyscrapers illuminated by light can be seen and behind them in the dark are tall skyscrapers that rise against a starless night sky.
