I will never forget my first time arrival in midtown Manhattan back in the early 70's. - the Lincoln building was the first skyscraper to catch my attention after leaving the bus station and I couldn't get over it's height! Wonderful building and so New York, much more interesting than all the new glass and steel 'scrapers that could be anywhere.

A very beautiful building in mid-town with great views of the Grand Central area.

My grandmother cleaned offices in the Lincoln Building in the 1940s, 1950s. She always brought me discarded sharpened pencils and scrap paper from there. She commuted by bus from the East Village, where she lived in a fifth-floor walkup. I recall her being proud to work in such a beautiful building.

My father worked in this building for many years until about 1968. I used to meet him sometimes for lunch at Schrafts or the Oyster Bar when I was a student at Cooper Union. He worked for Pure Carbonic with refrigeration. He put one of my paintings up in his office. I thought it was very nice that he could walk to his building on underground passages without going outside.

This is one of the best pre-war building in Mid-town built in the cluster of skyscrapers around Grand Central Station.
