Now, back over to North America. Philadelphia to be exact.

Philadelphia City Hall

When it was completed in 1881, Philadelphia City Hall was the largest public building in the United States. McArthur enlisted the help of his friend, former Architect of the Capitol Thomas U. Walter, to serve as his second in command. The building's Second Empire style was also called the General Grant style because it was used in so many public buildings during the Grant administration. Model created by Matt Brown with help from Lars Zimmerman.

New York

ITT-American Building

Completed in 1967. The ITT-American Building rises 512 feet, 40 Stories. Deisgned by Emery Roth & Sons.

Park Avenue Plaza & Raquet/Tennis Club

The Park Avenue Raquet & Tennis Club was first completed in 1916. The controversial Park Avenue Plaza was completed in 1981. The 15 sided, 44 Story, 575 foot tower today rises between 52nd and 53rd Streets. The very handsome Park Avenue Plaza was designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill intended to compliment the Lever House, across the street. Today the Park Avenue Plaza and Raquet/Tennis Club is one of New York's finest conjunctions of old and new.
