111 Eighth Avenue, New York

Designed by Lusby Simpson to house both a truck freight terminal and office area, it is now the NY office of Google. At "only" 18 floors, it's impressively the city's fourth largest building by floor area.

60 Hudson Street

Designed by Ralph Walker, who also designed 1 Wall Street, the Verizon Building and the AT&T Long Distance Building which have been posted in this thread already (strangely I couldn't find any record of 60 Hudson Street / Western Union building, but perhaps it's also been posted before).

Dong Ya (Tong Ah) Eating House

There are many very well preserved traditional shophouses in Singapore. They can be broadly categorised into 5 categories: Early, Transitional, Late (Chinese Baroque), Art Deco, and Modern. The building above is one of the best examples of Art Deco shophouse in Singapore.

There are some style recognition problems in this thread.

Do you agree the first art deco building is Theatre des Champs Elysees, by Auguste Perret?

I don't know any other before TdCE.

I love this cementery entry by Salamone y Argentina. When you see it personally is even more impressive:

MEXICO CITY

The area where I live in Mexico City, Condesa, has several nice examples of art déco, mostly residential.

De Inktpot building, 'Ink pot' in Utrecht, The Netherlands.

Built in 1921, This building serves as the headoffice for the national railway company, and is still the largest brick building in the country.
With recent refurbishments an UFO is placed on the roof as an artpiece, in my opinion completely ruining the monumental look of the building.
