Grand Central Station

The AT&T Long Lines Building

When I came across this building on Church Street, in SoHo, I was struck by the bizzare design. The giant monolith is 550 feet tall yet has no wondows.

The AT&T Long Lines Building

7 years later I deceided to do a Google search for "tall building no windows" and the top result is a link to Softpedia. Completed in 1974, the building was designed by William H. Whyte to house telephone switching equipment for AT&T.
