Daily News Building in New York City

Show Map
This Art Deco design classic, completed in 1930 to a design by Raymond Hood, was made famous by the ''Superman'' films; to be admired are the extreme verticality of the design, the understated setbacks and functional design. The newspaper no longer holds offices here, but the foyer is well worth a visit if passing, if only to see the newspaper's giant globe sculpture and wall weather stations.
