A detail photograph of the top of a skyscraper taken from a low angle. Horizontal bands of blue-gray windows alternate with continuous strips of blue-green terra cotta tiles. The company name is spelled out in large white terra cotta letters at the apex: “McGRAW-HILL.” Narrow lines of bright orange and small areas of tan adorn the facade. Boxy shapes at either end of the roof sign provide additional ornament.
