Thread: AIG Tower at 70 Pine Street - Window Count?

    Default AIG Tower at 70 Pine Street - Window Count?

    Hi, everyone. Pardon the bizarre nature of this question, though I hope somebody out there happens to have a trove of information not available to me.

    I'm trying to find out the number of windows in AIG's lower Manhattan tower.

    Anybody have even a rough guess?

    Thanks so much in advance!

    **As an edit, I should mention that I'm working on a book on AIG, and the information is for that purpose. Thanks!

    Andrew

    Which one? There's three AIG buildings in Lower Manhattan. I assume you're inquiring about the 1932 art deco tower at 70 Pine St? There's also 175 Water Street and 72 Wall Street. There's recent talk of AIG selling their Pine St., and Wall St. properties.

    Why do I have the weirdest feeling that the phrase "<number of windows> opportunities to jump" ends up in that book......

    If the govt had half a brain they would use the TALF to buy this building from AIG, rent the space back to them and then sell the building for an enormous profit 15 years from now.

    Actually I'm expecting it to be "<dollars worth of bonuses> per window" type of thing.

    That picture is awesome. They sure don't build them like that anymore.

    Sorry for the ambiguity there. I was referring to the 70 Pine Street one.

    Anybody have any best guesses before I send an intern out to start counting?

    That said, anybody have an intern I can borrow
