The Empire State Building was not even built yet when that photo was taken.

I am quite perplexed by your post

That's the New York Daily News Building which was strikingly modern at the time it was built. It along with the PSFS Building in Philadelphia were probably the most modern towers built before WW2.


PSFS Building, 1932

Vintage Photos of New York Superimposed onto Present Day. http://www.marchermann.com/dnthenandnow/

497 Dean St., Brooklyn
March 19, 1942...Edna Egbert proudly displayed a blue-star banner in her window, in honor of her son being the service. However, after not hearing from him since his enlistment, she became distraught and climbed out onto her ledge. Cops Ed Murphy and George Munday distracted her so she could be pushed into a safety net, the precursor of today’s standard airbags.
[IMG]http://i44.************/1zej9k4.jpg[/IMG]

Hicks St. & Summit St., Brooklyn
January 11, 1951...The bells in the steeple rang even as flames consumed the Church of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mart one chilly afternoon. The 90-year-old landmark was practically destroyed by the five-alarm blaze, but was rebuilt and still stands today
[IMG]http://i44.************/108i4rb.jpg[/IMG]

66 Court St., Brooklyn
January 13, 1961...A leaky gas pipe wa the cause of a massive explosion at this Downtown Brooklyn office building that shattered storefronts and injured 28 people. The sturdy 30-story building survived without any lasting scars from this incident.
[IMG]http://i44.************/jl04g6.jpg[/IMG]

Classon Ave. & Pacific St., Brokklyn
July 28, 1957...A recently released inmate of the Brooklyn House of Detention had forgotten some clothing, so the obvious solution was to steal a car with two friends to go retrieve it. They didn’t get far, however, coming to a crashing stop against a light pole at Classon Ave. & Pacific St. The auto body shop visible in the background is still in business, though relocated across the street.
[IMG]http://i44.************/2ibmhbc.jpg[/IMG]

137 Wooster St., Manhattan
February 16, 1958...A massive fire in the Elkins Paper & Twine Co. on Wooster St. claimed the lives of two firefighters and four members of the New York Fire Patrol. The building was a total loss, and was demolished shortly after the last of the victims’ bodies was recovered. Eight years later, the carnage would be eclipsed by a fire on 23rd St. in which 12 firefighters were killed, leaving the tragedy on Wooster St. to fade into a distant memory.
[IMG]http://i41.************/e6oq5l.jpg[/IMG]

Park Row, Manhattan
July 22, 1943...An M-7 Priest, a self-propelled 105mm gun, rolls up Park Row in front of City Hall en route to Fifth Ave. library where it was placed on display as part of a war bonds drive.
[IMG]http://i40.************/1sfe46.jpg[/IMG]


see all 15 photos on the link provided. ( but some of them are graphic. )

Sure, I found some.









Might as well, share this too, since I found it interesting:

I was fortunate enough to go inside it last summer and stand in that exact spot. The lobby is absolutely incredible.
