Paramount Building, New York City


This is a photo of the Paramount Theatre which was a noted movie palace located at 43rd Street and Broadway in the Times Square district of New York City. Opened in 1926, it was the premiere showcase for Paramount Pictures and also a live performance venue before it was gutted and converted to office and retail space in 1965. The office building housing it, a thirty-three story office tower influenced by the Art Deco style, known as the Paramount Building, remains a Times Square landmark. To this day, the Paramount Building is known for its large four-faced clock near the top of the pyramidial structure, and an ornamental globe at the very top of the building.

Love the structure and architecture. It's very, shall I say antique looking yet stylish.
