Fodor's Review

Inspired by New York's Chrysler Building, the terra-cotta bas-reliefs on this 21-story, 1930s art deco structure depict the history of transportation—airships, steamships, locomotives, and submarines—as well as Mayan and Egyptian motifs and images of marine life. Step inside for a look at the beautifully restored interior, then walk to the corner of Hastings and Hornby streets for the best view of the building. It serves as the headquarters of the Daily Planet

in the TV show, Smallville.
