Foster + Partners’ 100 East 53rd Tips Its Hat to Its Iconic Midtown Neighbors – Metropolis

“In the days before the luxury mishmashes of the High Line and Hudson Yards on Manhattan’s West Side, the closest thing the city had to a Starchitect Row could be found on (or near) East 53rd Street between Sixth Avenue and the East River. There rose a promenade of classics: Eero Saarinen’s Black Rock, MoMA’s Goodwin/Stone home, SOM’s Lever House, Mies van der Rohe’s Seagram Building, Hugh Stubbins’s Citigroup Center, and Philip Johnson’s Lipstick Building.”
