1 Wall Street and Empire Building

1 Wall Street (left): hot-cha Art Deco skyscraper. Ralph Walker, 1921. Now home to The Bank of New York.


Empire Building (right): Francis Kimball, 1898. Was the home to U.S. Steel for three-quarters of a century. Now (of course) it's apartments.


I say a little more about the Empire Building on my landmarks blog.
