Park Row Building
The Park Row Building or 15 Park Row Building is a Gratte-ciel of New York, located in the Financial District of Manhattan. With a 119 meters height, it was most Gratte-ciel world between its inauguration in 1899 and 1908 where it was exceeded by the Singer Building . In 1901, a project of building announced by Aetna was supposed to exceed it, but its construction finally did not take place. The Park Row Building comprises 29 stages, 26 being located in the heart of the Gratte-ciel, and the three others being distributed on the two cupolas located at the top of the building . The building is presented in fact in the shape of a large rectangle, separate in six horizontal sections, on which two cupolas came to be grafted, and because of this characteristic architecture, the skyscraper remains one of the buildings symbolic systems of the south of Manhattan. However, during its construction, the Gratte-ciel accepted criticisms rather negative, for criticisms, the cupolas were “unimportant additions which did not add finally anything”, whereas the frontages were perceived like “absolutely inexpressive and insipid”.
The Park Row Building belongs to some buildings still upright of a street which was formerly baptized Newspaper Row (“gone of the newspapers”) because of the multiplication of the editors of newspapers in this zone between the years 1840 and 1920. Thus, in 1900, the skyscraper sheltered the news agency Associated Press.
