The Beauty of Art Deco

Rockefeller Center is a classic example of modern architecture in a big city done right. From the design, the structure, the functionality and the beauty, every thing works. Three quarters of a century after it was finished, it is still a marvel. Few if any buildings that have gone up in Manhattan in the last two decades have any real architectural integrity. More recently a drastic change in zoning rules has allowed for the construction of a multitude of spindly luxury skyscrapers that are an atrocity and are destroying the skyline of New York City.
