Lever House

Recommended
When it opened in 1952, the 21-story green-glass Lever House, designed by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, was considered avant-garde, contrasting as it did with the stone and brick apartment buildings of Park Avenue. But the structure inspired many imitations throughout the city, although few were as elegant.
