Description
Architect: John Carl Warnecke & Associates

- A twin/continuation of this building was planned, but was never built.

- The tower is windowless for the security and protection of expensive equipment.

- The AT&T Long Lines Building is one of the most important buildings in New York City, the tower and its phone lines are designed to withstand a nuclear blast and fallout and be self-sufficient for two weeks in wartime conditions.

- Each floor is actually 19 feet high, so the building is as high as a 40 story tower, but has only 29 floors.

- The 10th and 29th floors there are series of large, protruding ventilation openings.
