3 NEW YORK PLAZA NEW YORK

A flashpoint for Vietnam War protesters, this former U.S. Army Building was where generations of
draftees went for their pre-induction physicals as far back as the Korean War. In the days when the
draft was still in effect, any eighteen-year-old who got a letter beginning, âœGreetingsâ¦â didn’t have
to read any further. It wasn’t even necessary to ask how to get hereâ”every young man in the city
knew exactly where it was. âœWhitehall Street❠said it all. The building, which resembled a
castellated fortress, was swallowed up behind the glass walls that now enclose a health club, and
offices rise above the original structure, which is still just under the surface.
