CROWN BUILDING NEW YORK

Originally the Hecksher Building and later the Genesco Building, this was the first tall office structure in the Fifth Avenue retail district and the first skyscraper built following the dictates of the 1916 zoning law, which set out unprecedented restrictions on the massing of such buildings. Its silhouette was intended to serve as a friendly backdrop to the Vanderbilt mansion, which stood on the opposite corner of West 57th Street.
