NEW YORK | Central Park Tower (217 W 57th St) | 1,550 FT | 98 FLOORS

From this picture I can see the movement from Art Deco to Bauhaus but I don’t think it has aged well.

I’ve always found it quite pleasing on that site. Glad to know it’s not going anywhere.

I did not know the history of this building: age, design intent or landmark status. I guess one could say this building is an example of the early works of ‘modernist’ architecture; as this was not designed in the traditonal or classical styles which was the predominant mode of architecture at the time.

It is sort of a plain looking building (except for the mosaic in front) and one would not expect a landmark status: but that historical significance really makes the case. I see 240 CPS with a new found level of appreciation. :tada:
