Times Building - 1908

 

The Times Building, in Manhattan, was completed in 1904. Architects Cyrus L. W. Eidlitz and Andrew C. McKenzie turned for inspiration to Giotto's Campanile in Florence. Times Tower was second in height to the Park Row Building, but when considering the basement, it was the City's tallest structure from base to top. In the 1960s its façade was entirely reclad and then served as a kiosk for billboards and video screens.
