Facts

  • The flat crown was once a prominent building feature, but is now just an exposed cooling tower.
  • There is a dramatic contrast between plinth and shaft.
  • Inside, the lobby is almost shorn of ornaments.
  • The walls inside consist of pink-gray matched marble with little trim, under recessed lights.
  • The only historicist touch is a pair of griffins that support the lobby clock.
  • This was designed by the same architects who did the Empire State Building, in the same year, and on an equally prominent site.
