This was Cass Gilbert’s first commission in New York, and one of the first to use steel-frame construction. The base is pink granite, the shaft is red and beige brick, the capital is colorful terracotta, and the cornice is beautifully weathered copper, all of it working in graceful harmony. It is located a few blocks up Broadway from Gilbert’s other contribution to the neighborhood, the Woolworth Building.
