Lever House

Recommended
When it opened in 1952, the 20-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 along Park Avenue. The innovative, elegant structure was subsequently imitated throughout the city, although rarely equaled.
