    I love the last picture.
    The question-marked building which is the second picture from the bottom is Park Avenue Plaza, soon-to-be renamed to Aeon Building.

    And the other question-marked building is the Lefcourt Union Building, I believe.

    BTW, when exactly was that skyline photo taken? *I know that it's not yours, but do you know when?

    It's the 10th East 40th Tower (Ludlow & Peabody, 19??). *

    Is Lefcourt Union Building another name for it? *I've always known it as 10 East 40th, but according to Skyscrapers.com, it's called the Mercantile Building. *The year it was built varies depending on the source.

    I've always known it as the Mercantile Building but it's also known as the 10 East 40th Tower - built in 1929.

    Here it is in an old photo sitting prominently on the new midtown skyline, just to the left of the crease.

    I'd disagree with some of your labelling, but thank you for posting.

    NYatKNIGHT, that photo is breathtaking. Where is it from? What are the odds you know where I can get it as a poster?

    Hmm...I just remember this one painting of the art-deco buildings in the early 40s, and there were two that looked quite similar to one another. *I guess that one was the Mercantile (the one that ddny displayed) and the other was the Lefcourt.

    I got it from a wirednewyork thread called Old pics / aerials of The City posted by Grimm last October. Check it out, there's lot's of great old photos.

    Sorry to say I have no idea where you can get this poster.
