There are a million different squares in New York. Even what we know as Times Square is two different squares.


The Park Avenue viaduct, built from 1917-1919, is located on Park Avenue between 40th and 42nd Streets. The raised roadway, which routes traffic around Grand Central Terminal on an elevated terrace, returns to street level on 45th Street. Over the years the area occupied by the viaduct has come to be known as Pershing Square. The city once planned to build a plaza named in honor of General John J. Pershing adjacent to the viaduct but the Pershing Square Building was built on that spot instead.

A couple more to go with that last set from proforged.

NEW YORK heals.

“Office buildings are our factories – whether for tech, creative or traditional industries we must continue to grow our modern factories to create new jobs,” said United States Senator Chuck Schumer.
