General Electric Building (GE Building) - New_York


The construction of the GE Building was ended in 1933, and it has since then become one of the most famous skyscrapers in the Big Apple. It houses the radio and television studios of the NBC. In the main hall, you will see The American Progress by José M. Sert which replaced the controversial fresco by Diego Rivera (deemed too Marxist with the representation of Lenin). Located at the heart of the Rockefeller Center and Midtown, its art-deco style attracts attention as does its height which passes 250 metres. With this kind of stature, it is easy to see why the building is one of the top 10 tallest in New York. Its architecture is original with a flat roof, without a spire, and its vertical lines highlight the size of the building. The exterior of the building has bas-reliefs of an art-deco style which cover the grey walls, and are a sight not to be missed. At the main entrance, you will see a piece of work by Lee Lawrie (American sculptor) representing an allegory of wisdom with an old, bearded man.
