Midtown's New Landmarks; Another 'Secret' Swimming Pool

New, 3 comments

MIDTOWN?The Landmarks Preservation Commission blessed two Midtown buildings today with landmark status, and talk about an add couple! First up is the Look Building at 488 Madison Avenue (named for the magazine that once lived there), a Modernist 21-story office building designed by Emery Roth & Sons. The Burrill House at 36 East 38th Street is a bit more old school, a five-story Beaux Arts brownstone built in 1903 for a prominent attorney by Hoppin & Koen, the same architecture firm that did the amazing old police building down on Centre Street.
