Metroplian Life Insurance Company Building
The tower of the Metroplian Life Insurance Company Building was designed to reflect the bell tower at St. Mark's Square in Venice, Italy.
Architects Napoleon LeBrun and Sons had an eye for beauty, as their design of the expanding Metroplian Life Insurance Company on 23rd Street was to replicate the San Marco Bell Tower in Venice, Italy. The building stands 700 feet high and was no doubt one of the world's tallest when it was completed in 1909.
When this picture was taken in 1925, it still reigned in as one of the tallest (Chrysler and Empire were still in the planning stages). Maybe not one of the top ten, but surly still one of beautiful architecture.
