A black and white photograph of one face of a tall, narrow skyscraper at night. The tower has several small setbacks and is brilliantly illuminated, standing in contrast to the black night sky. The view of the tower is from a perpendicular main rod, looking down a broad, landscaped alley flanked by low, partly lit buildings. People hurry past storefronts on the sidewalk.

Rockefeller Center is not Greek, but it suggests the balance of Greek architecture. It is not Babylonian, but it retains the flavor of Babylon's magnificence. It is not Roman, yet it has Rome's enduring qualities of mass and strength. Rockefeller Center (1932)
