Hint: An Art Deco Masterpiece With 13,000 Miles Of Wires

New, 18 comments

This Art Deco building first opened in 1930, when this photo was shot. It allegedly contained 70 million feet of cables as part of its function as a major corporate headquarters. The structure still exists today, and though its old anchor tenant has long since vacated to the 'burbs, it houses modern-day companies that operate in a similar field. Who was its first major tenant, what is the address of this building, and what is it used for today?
