New York City -1931-
The McGraw-Hill Building or aka "Jolly Green Giant" for the era that it was built was a very radical choice in colors. It is clad in a turquoise green terra cotta, the same color is used on a smaller Art Deco building in Los Angeles that I may also post on. Art Deco is one of my favorite styles of architecture and I will finally use it on my next structure.
McGraw-Hill no longer resides in this building but like the Chrysler Building it still carries the moniker it was born with.
