Point of Interest Details

ABC Television occupies a multi-building campus between Central Park and Columbus Avenue. Designed by Kohn Pedersen & Fox, architect and planner of Hudson Yards, most of the structrues in this vaguely classical ensemble date from the late 1980s and early 1990s. Particularly impressive is the corporate headquarters at 77 West 66th Street, a 22-story rose-and-salmon-colored brick tower with a gently curved facade and an unusual roof. New York Times architecture critic Paul Goldberger called this crowning feature an "inverted mansard."
