That is because New York is only the true skyscraper city of that decade, not even Chicago comes close.

Eastern Columbia Building

All from the website L.A. Places.
Bullocks Wilshire used to be a plus department store of that decade.

As for the other Art Deco scrapers, good thing some of them have been converted to lofts instead of being left abandoned.

The Bassett Tower
El Paso TX

Bassett Tower by fiera121, on Flickr

The O. T. Bassett Tower is an Art Deco skyscraper located at 303 Texas Avenue in Downtown El Paso, Texas. It was built by Charles N. Bassett, who named it in honor of his father. The tower was designed by Trost & Trost and completed in 1930, making it one of Henry Trost's last commissions. It was briefly the tallest building in the city but was surpassed later the same year by the Hilton Hotel. The Bassett Tower is 196 feet (60 m) tall and has 15 stories, with setbacks at the tenth and thirteenth floors. It is faced with tan brick veneer and adorned with stone and terra cotta decorative elements, including a sculpted face over the main entrance which is believed to be that of Trost himself. The building is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

most of Manila's art-deco buildings had already been demolished or had been destroyed during WW2 but we do have recently-built ones in the art-deco style:

The Palace Tapie (corner of Constituent and Santiago de Chile), compared to City Hall is a beautiful example of art deco with rational elements of Montevideo. It was built in 1934 by Vazquez Arq.Francisco Echeveste.

La cúpula del Tapié es simplemente genial.

So awesome!

Special thanks for those interiors of Baltimore's BoA, I had no idea about the beauty inside there! Fantastic. It's a department store, obviously? Just one floor or even more?

The Carlyle Hotel New York

The Carlyle Hotel

Named for British essayist Thomas Carlyle, the 35-story hotel, designed by the architectural firm of Bien & Prince, was completed in 1930. Moses Ginsberg, a millionaire construction magnate, built the Carlyle Hotel.

A newspaper account of the time described the design as a "diversified setback style," which provides private terraces for some guest rooms and suites. The Carlyle dominates the Upper East Side skyline over which it presides.

The Carlyle was planned as a hotel and as a group of individual residences, some large, other small assembled under one roof. Bien & Prince also designed the apartment house 140 E. 40 St.

The strong Art Deco influence, introduced by the hotel's first decorator Dorothy Draper, has been maintained, from the black and white marbled lobby to Art Deco motifs of the hotel's specialty suites. In 2002, interior designer Thierry Despont restored Bemelmans Bar and the Lobby while the Café Carlyle, restored by Scott Salvator, and the Banquet Space, were renovated by Matthew White and Frank Webb, in 2007.

According to Wikipedia the hotel went into receivership in 1931 and was sold to the Lyleson Corporation in 1932. In 1948, the Carlyle was purchased by New York businessman Robert Whittle Downing who began to transform it from a respectable address to a "downright fashionable" one, frequented by elegant Europeans.

President John F. Kennedy owned an apartment on the 34th floor for ten years. The hotel's Café Carlyle hosted jazz performer Bobby Short from 1968-2004 and Woody Allen and his jazz band have played regularly.
