Facts

  • This building takes the form of a typical rectangular tower although here it has been sheathed in an expensive, polished red granite skin.
  • Unlike the usual slab building, it flares out at the bottom and curves toward the sidewalk.
  • The skyscraper was designed for offices with ground-level retail stores along Madison Avenue.
  • The plaza in front of the 53rd Street entrance has a waterfall as well as a sidewalk clock. There is also a portion of the torn-down Berlin Wall on display.
