Art Deco in New York City

I know this is a bit off the topic of landscape architecture, but I happen to have a love for Art Deco design, and want to share some photos of this subject that I took in New York City last year. My grandfather was an architect when this style was very popular; in fact, he was one of many architects who designed the Rockefeller Center complex of buildings when he was employed by Raymond Hood.
