Toronto recently lost one of its art deco skyscrapers. The Concourse Building was demolished last month:

It was a valid question. 4 posts in and already resorting to name calling? Not a good start.

Some British Examples. Not exactly Skyscrapers. We don't have many skyscrapers due to historic laws and planning permissions.

Senate House. London. 1932-1937

55 Broadway. London. 1927-1929

Few less known examples from NYC:

Daily News Building (1930). It's from the same architect who designed Rockefeller Center.

AT&T Building (1932) in Lower Manhattan






Downtown Athletic Club (1930) and Le Rivage Apartments (1931). They look great together.
