At&T building NYC looks like a book opened when viewed from above


and some cool info about the building..



"The adjacent photograph is of the 70 foot high entrance lobby, which showcases the 24 foot tall "Golden Boy" (Spirit of Communications) statue. The statue had topped the original AT&T building in lower Manhatten from 1916, where it stood 434 feet above street level for 64 years. The figure was restored in 1981, and placed in the new headquarters lobby. It is thought to be the 2nd largest architectural figure in Manhatten, topped only by the Statue of Liberty." from this site

When on the Chicago Architecture Foundation walking tour, I was told the top of the Zerox building is supposed to look like the nob on a typewriter.
