The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: moved to 1740 Broadway. I've noticed we tend to jump the gun in situations like this, going with the new official name perhaps before it's adopted unofficially in regular usage sufficiently to be considered the most common name, presumably because such usage tends to follow official naming fairly quickly, and causes no reader harm due to redirects.

Requested move[edit]

Mutual of New York Building1740 Broadway — New name. Chaplin62 (talk) 00:35, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

  • Comment is this numeric name actually the common name for the building? 76.66.200.95 (talk) 04:55, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
According to the article, it is. It even says the name on the building was changed, SkyscraperPage, and the official website claims so. Chaplin62 (talk) 21:15, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
The article says nothing about the common name, only the official name. It implies that MONY Building is the common name. 76.66.200.95 (talk) 04:57, 3 October 2010 (UTC)
