A New York City Treasure

By Linda Tancs

On the east side of New York City’s Park Avenue between 52nd and 53rd streets you’ll find an architectural gem, the Seagram Building. One of the finest examples of skyscrapers in the International Style, the building was the first with floor-to-ceiling windows. The interior is no less spectacular, particularly The Four Seasons Restaurant. Designed in 1959 by Mies van der Rohe and Philip Johnson, it is the only Manhattan restaurant designated an architectural (interior) landmark. Alas, its tenure at the Seagram will end on July 16, but the restaurant will re-open next year at a nearby location.
