The Niagara Mohawk Building is in SYRACUSE, New York, not Rochester.

How could you leave out the Times Square Building in Rochester?!!!

Okay, okay calm down. They are very similar cities that are very close. My bad.

The Times Square Building's top is pretty cool up close, but I don't particularly love it.

Not similar nor close at all...

But, hey, I'm correcting a mistake - not emotional at all. Looks like YOU need to do a little chilling...

Another massive Art Deco skyscraper that was never completed was Eaton's College Park in Toronto. The stock market crash in 1929 halted construction with only 1 corner of the structure completed. It would have been the world's largest office complex.

You can see the 1 corner that was completed in the 2nd photo. College Park would have taken up the entire red outlined square.

I wonder if there is a fusion between artistic art deco and simple minimalism or boxy modernism architecture .You can post the sample buildings if you have.

It's worth nothing that I'm not the most familiar person with art deco, but I think this restaurant here in Oslo have some resembles to art deco in it. Especially around the entrance. It's from 1929.

Surprisingly no one mentioned The Carbon&Carbide in Chicago. It's another true masterpiece!

The best thing about this building is, that one can actually sleep in it. I've stayed in it and it was an unforgettable experience.
