1251 Avenue of the Americas
One of the quintessential New York skyscrapers, 1251 Avenue of the Americas embodies the city during its mid-20th century growth spurt. The building features narrow rows of vertical masonry columns climbing into the sky. The columns frame windows that are recessed, but not too recessed like so many similar skyscrapers. Its narrow face is on Sixth Avenue while its broad sides extend westward emphasizing just how massive this building is.

This structure lacks appeal and quality and is undecorative and old-fashioned.
