Facts

  • Currently the building is gutted and all that remains is the historic facade, merged into a single building with Hearst Tower that rises out of the old building.
  • It gave New Yorkers one of their first looks at what would be later termed the Art Deco style.
  • The sculptures outside the building are a fascinating example of how neatly modern motifs overlay classical designs.
  • This building was originally designed as the platform of a 20-story skyscraper that was never completed.
