New York City Sights



Daily News Building

Daily News Building Review

The landmark lobby of this art deco tower contains an illuminated 12-foot globe that revolves beneath a black glass dome. Around it, spreading across the floor like a giant compass and literally positioning New York at the center of the world, bronze lines indicate mileage to various international destinations. Movie fans may recognize the building from its role as the offices of the fictional newspaper the Daily Planet in the original Superman movie. The Daily News hasn't called this building home since the mid-1990s. Only the lobby is open to the public (but that's enough).
