Probably the most interesting Art Decó building in Latin America: the old Abasto Market, today the Shopping Abasto in Buenos Aires, Argentina

I like it, i wish they kept more of the original interior though.
This is actually my favorite NYC skyscraper, but it is often never mentioned.
Grand Central Place/Lincoln Building -NYC

That's neo-gothic style. I like that tower too, but I didn't know it's name so I couldn't research it myself. Too bad they ruined these trifora windows at the top

From what I see on the pictures (and also very common on NYC in that era), it is a mix of art deco with neogothic style. In some very minor details, it has some elements of the islamic architecture.

According to Emporis its also Renaissance Revival, so it honestly beats me.....It shares some characteristics with all of the above at least.

Another sweet combination that can be seen on the evolution of the post-fascism architecture, also in Buenos Aires: the Medicine School, a mix of Art Decó and monumentalism straight from italian big palaces of the 20th century

An exquisite example of Art Decó, also in Buenos Aires: the Bencich Building of the Diagonal Norte Avenue

Those Buenos Aires buildings are eclectic/historicist Belle Epoque examples rather than Art Deco. Please check some theory for more accurate classificiation, this is an architecture forum. Thank you!

All of the posted above appear in the text books of the University of Architecture of Buenos Aires (FADU). Remember that almost every building in this particular city has a mix of styles. Same with the New York ones who share the neogothic with Art Decó.

Yeah, as I said, they are eclectic. But I can't spot a single element at the Bencich Building that says "Art Deco".

Probably already posted but when I think of Art Deco, I think of a building down the road a little ways in Syracuse, NY.

The Niagara Mohawk building:

In all honesty, I find these old buildings way, way more stunning than the new 3000 ft tall, twisty glass towers we pump out today.
