Facts

  • Shape, color and facade material (bluish-green terra-cotta) choices were among the most radical for the time of construction.
  • The building marks a transitional area on 42nd street: to the east is the bustling 42nd Street area, to the west there is a quiet and relatively new neighborhood of highrise residential towers.
  • More than half of the building's windows look over the Port Authority Bus Terminal.
  • The building has been nicknamed "The Jolly Green Giant".
  • On the McGraw-Hill Building, continuous banks of green-metal-framed windows alternate with panels of turquoise terra-cotta blocks.
  • The building was the tallest and largest in the area for decades.
