New York City, Manhattan, Murray Hill, Madison Ave : Lincoln Building 1930.

Source : Wikipédia,_Manh...


The Lincoln Building (now known as One Grand Central Place) is an office building located at 60 East 42nd Street in New York City, opposite Grand Central Terminal. It was completed in 1930. The architect was James Edwin Ruthven Carpenter, Jr. It is 673 feet (205 meters) tall with 53 stories and built in neo-gothic style.


Although dwarfed by other buildings in the area, notably the Chrysler Building and MetLife Building, the Lincoln has a number of interesting features, including gothic windows at the top, the lobby, and the bronze model by Daniel Chester French of Abraham Lincoln for the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. (after renaming of the building in 2009, the model was removed).


Le Lincoln Building est un immeuble de bureaux situé au 60 de la 42e rue à New York, en face de la gare Grand Central Terminal.


Il a été achevé en 1930. L'architecture de style néogothique est due à James Edwin Ruthvin Carpenter. Ce gratte-ciel atteint 205 mètres de haut et possède cinquante-trois étages.

Bien qu'il soit de dimensions plus réduites que d'autres constructions du quartier, comme les Chrysler Building et MetLife Building, le Lincoln présente des caractéristiques intéressantes : ses fenêtres gothiques au sommet, son hall, et une statue de bronze représentant Abraham Lincoln, réalisée par Daniel Chester French.
