1. 101 Park Avenue plaque
Inscription.  
Embedded in the sidewalks surrounding this property are a series of bronze reliefs that celebrate the rich architectural heritage of the commercial properties in the Grand Central Partnership District.

On this site – 101 Park Avenue – once stood “The Architects’ Building” home to many of the designers of these impressive structures.

This commemorative project seeks to re-establish this historic link. It was made possible through the leadership and generosity of H.J. Kalikow and Co., and the Grand Central Partnership.

The bronze reliefs are by Gregg LeFevre, a sculptor of this city, assisted by James Owens of Boston.
