Brutalism etc
#1
A now closed thread discussed the Pan Am building (now the Metlife building), never a favourite of mine.
Grand Central Station was discussed in that thread. I have in my possession a tome Grand Central Station; City within the City (General Editor Deborah Nevins : Publ The Municipal Art Society of New York : 1982 ) 
The Forward by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis is a standout, proof if ever anyone needed it Jacki was no airhead.
Another wonderful structure that was almost torn down by architectural philistines, Jacki was instrumental in the struggle to keep  it intact. Too many of these wondrous neo-classical railway stations have been wrecked.
