    That last picture reminds me of the Singer Building a little.

    It also caught fire the night it opened, or so I've heard.

    Default who built the hotel?

    I don't mean Chanin, who I think was the architech here as well as on his eponymous building and other thin set-back towers, I mean the building company (which I think was the same for both buildings also). I haven't been able to find this out on various websites. Thank you if anyone knows. Liz

    Sure ... and after all, why not?

    Well, Modernism says Eclecticism is the devil's work.

    We've become such puritans (but the developers love us for it; they get to build for less).

    ^ If that's the case, we need to get more devilish again.

    Anyway, this pic caught me eye. Ain't it a beauty?
