The Lincoln Building, from 42nd Street and Fifth Avenue

The Lincoln Building (now known as One Grand Central Place) 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. It is 673 feet (205 meters) tall with 53 stories and 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).

Along with the Barclay Tower, it is the 49th-tallest building in New York City as of 2013.
