Hi Linda,
My husband worked on the Pan Am building in 1961, when he was in the elevator union. He said that when Pan Am went out of business that MetLife bought it. Love the contrast with the younger Pan Am in the background and the older Grand Central Terminal in the foreground. Happy Birthday GCT! Most of us do not reach 100 years!

What was the location of the Pan Am building in this photo?
Thank you.

I was there sometime during the last century and took the train through Chicago on to west coast.
