Midtown: Fred F. French Building Lobby

Midtown: Fred F. French Building Lobby

There are some really fine building lobbies in Manhattan, almost all of them dating to the ’30s at the latest, and this is one of the best.

The architects used Babylonian motifs, visible here in the barrel-vaulted ceiling of the lobby and portal as well as in the bronze panels and moldings.
