Those elevators are hard to fit luggage and 2 people inside. A steamer trunk would be difficult unless you can get another elevator down at the same time as the other one. I was thinking, they likely were disguised as workers and took it out saying it needed to be restored. I remember one time I was...

Roderick: I used the plan for the basis of the design. I used the doorways to scale it. My upper floors haven't been fixed but in my defense this is a hard model to maneuver around in. I have made tweaks when the front columns were not spacing right. The model is split 2 ways so it is easy to fix an...

In the split plan shows a typical floor and the club room plan. Every floor has their own balcony on either side. Behind the column you see, in my photo,is actually on the inside.

This is the latest updates. The details in the drawings are so unnoticed. https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5646/21909601164_b5cd53b9b0.jpg https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5734/22344396020_347f57f910.jpg https://farm1.staticflickr.com/630/21911142683_d4d75229dc.jpg https://farm1.staticflickr.com/589/219...

In the Taschen is there a floor plan for typical and club floors?
I'm amazed at the column details. The arch does make sense as the Press Building does have an arch way.

The height is now 259', the average height for a 24 story building. The floor spacing is 7'7" except at the top and bottoms. https://farm1.staticflickr.com/627/22487219242_8e4a58bdb4.jpg https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5715/21879440883_969b83a045.jpg https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5800/22313814299_5c...
