One Grand Central Place - Lincoln Building


View Larger Map
(Now known as One Grand Central Place) The Lincoln Building is an office building located at 60 East 42nd Street in New York City, opposite Grand Central Terminal. One Grand Central Place was completed in 1930. The One Grand Central Place architect was James Edwin Ruthven Carpenter, Jr.. It is 673 feet (205 meters) tall with 53 stories and built in neo-gothic style.
Although dwarfed by other buildings in the area, notably the Chrysler Building and MetLife Building, the Lincoln has a number of interesting features, including gothic windows at the top, the lobby, and the bronze model by Daniel Chester French of Abraham Lincoln for the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. (after renaming of the building in 2009, the model was removed).
