In 1960, Walter Gropius was asked to help design a new headquarters for Pan Am Airways. Pan Am, once the most prolific and famous airlines in the world, wanted a building that would stand out. And it did, but not in a way intended. Built in the International Style, it dwarfs Grand Central Station and helps divide Park Avenue. It’s massive, with its large logo (originally it was “Pan Am”, but when MetLife bought the structure in 1981 it was changed to “MetLife”) visible from miles away. Its architecture lies in stark contrast to the older, more ornate buildings that surround it. It’s the epitome of an office building: windows that won’t open, tall and long orderly lines, and a brutalist base that can be soul crushing. But there’s more to the MetLife Building than meets the eye. It once held a helicopter pad on its roof, and despite the contrast in style it does have its own elegant style. It’s a feature of the midtown skyline and has become a landmark in its own right. MetLife doesn’t own the building anymore, that honor goes to real estate heavyweights Tishman-Speyer and California billionaire Donald Bren. The sign is still there, and it will likely remain. Until One Vanderbilt is completed 200 Park Avenue will remain as the most dominant building on the Park Avenue Strip.

I love getting lost in independent bookstores, especially when they're as magical as the Mysterious Bookshop. What's the last good book you read?

On June 12, 2004, Shake Shack officially opened; after being awarded the contract from New York City’s Department of Parks & Recreation and the Madison Square Park Conservancy to create a permanent food kiosk in the park. The original Shack (along with many of its siblings) was designed by the architecture firm SITE Environmental Design to be harmonious with the park and its surroundings. People from all over the world join us to enjoy great food in an incredible outdoor setting.”” · · · • • • #groupeheras #️⃣luxuryrealestate #️⃣excellence @compass#visualsoflife  #heatercentral  #theimaged #folkvibe  #mobilemag #exploretocreate #jaw_dropping_shots  #wonderful_places #shotaward  #newyork_instagram #nycdotgram  #lensbible  #theweekoninstagram #huffpostgram  #igersofnyc  #hot_shotz #ig_dynamic  #instagood  #igmasters #exklusive_shot  #ig_captures #gearednomad  #visualambassadors #natgeotravel  #way2ill  #gramslayers   #watchthisinstagood

The skylight of the Oculus is built with 224 pieces of glass in 40 panels that are cantilevered from the surrounding steel skeleton. Once a year, on September 11th, the skylight is opened in memory of that fateful day. On all other days, sun light, the blue sky, and the clouds can reflect through the skylight giving the aura of a symmetrical space ship. It's a breathtaking piece of architecture designed by the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava that must be seen to be believed #worldtradecenter #oculus #architect #santiagocalatrava #architectureporn #archilovers #architecturephotography #arkiromantix #symmetrybuff #symmetricalmonsters #symmetrykillers #shotzdelight #jaw_dropping_shots #what_i_saw_in_nyc #imagesofnyc #newyork_ig #igersnyc #ig_nycity #picturenyc #igersofnyc #nycshare #nycdotgram #colorofnewyork #sites_of_newyork #rsa_light #inspiring_photography_admired #splendid_shotz #ig_ometry

Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States, was born at this address and lived here until he was 14 years old. The present four-story brownstone reconstructs the birthplace, rebuilt from its former neighbor and mirror image, owned by Roosevelt’s uncle. It was built in 1923 after realizing tearing down the old home was a mistake. Among the memorabilia inside are his shirt pierced with bullet holes by a failed assassination attempt, taxidermy, his Rough Rider uniform, and his diaries. Roosevelt remains Manhattan’s only born and raised President. He has a large history as a police commissioner and the outspoken supporter of the American Museum of Natural History. He was only 42 years old when he became the POTUS, the youngest President to lead this country. Double-tap if you like it!
