Faits

  • No longer occupied by the Daily News, the Daily News Building is one of New York's best known skyscrapers. It was designated a New York City Landmark in 1981. Its lobby remains one of the most unusual architectural sights in the city.
  • An addition designed by Harrison and Abramowitz was added to the east side of the tower in 1958.
  • A large, revolving globe, set against a backdrop of black glass and aluminum in the center of the lobby, symbolized the paper's global perspective.
  • The costly building was constructed when the Daily News had the largest circulation of any newspaper in the United States.
  • The structure contained the newspaper's offices and speculative office space in a tower set back above a 10-story base with larger floors to accommodate the presses.
  • At a time when other developers shunned the area east of the Third Avenue El, the Daily News selected this site so that it could house its noisy printing presses in the same facility as its editorial offices.
  • Art Deco features of the exterior facade include the use of polychrome brick and red and black spandrels between the windows.
