One Grand Central Place (formerly the Lincoln Building) is an office building at 60 East 42nd Street in New York City, opposite Grand Central Terminal. It was completed in 1930. The architect was James Edwin Ruthven Carpenter, Jr. The 53-story skyscraper is 673 feet (205 m) tall and was built in neo-gothic style.

Although dwarfed by other buildings in the area, notably the Chrysler Building and MetLife Building, the Lincoln has a number of interesting features, including gothic windows at the top, the lobby, and the bronze model by Daniel Chester French of Abraham Lincoln for the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. (after renaming of the building in 2009, the model was removed).

It is tied with the Barclay Tower as the 49th-tallest building in New York City as of 2013.
