Daily News Building

Daily News Building (77)

This huge Art Deco skyscraper was designed by Raymond Hood, André Fouilhoux Mead and John Howell after being awarded this highly coveted prize in a 1922 design-tender. The construction of its 37 floors, which give the impression of even greater height due to the building's vertical design, was completed in 1930. The building is known worldwide as the headquarters of the Daily News, one of the most famous New York newspapers, founded by Joseph Medill Patterson in 1919.

The Daily News Building, also known as The News Building, is certainly often visited for its grand entrance and lobby. At the entrance you will see beautiful ornaments and other art deco elements, as well as a large inscription that reads "The News" under which is written, in smaller letters, "He made so many of them." That is, "God created so many news."

But, in any case, we can assure you that the most striking and well-known part of the building is the lobby. This features the famous massive spinning globe 4 metres in diameter, which has been photographed and filmed so many times. If travelling with children, you will love this part of the building.

Moreover, both children and adults will be interested to know that this was the building that served as a model for the Daily Planet, the newspaper that Clark Kent, that is, Superman worked for. You will surely you remember one of the scenes showing Louis Lane and Clark Kent crossing paths after work in the first Superman film, made in 1978.
