Once the HQ of the Mighty Oval

The pictures of the AC&Y Building [in Akron] reminded me that a couple years ago I took pictures of the old New York Central headquarters building adjacent to Grand Central Terminal. The two buildings obviously have common family traits, such as a large external clock with Roman gods and goddesses surrounding it. Although it has been named the Helmsley Building for many years, if one looks carefully you’re find these interwoven NYC initials. At 31 stories, it is a midget among its contemporary neighbors, but the elegance is undeniable.
