The tall building with no windows, AT&T long lines #NYC #iphoneography #photography #architecture

P287

The AT&T Long Lines Building is a truly unique building, not because it’s the tallest, the largest, or the most technically advanced. In fact, it’s not even habitable, as it doesn’t house apartments or offices. The 167.5 meter tall skyscraper was built to house telephone switching equipment and was completed in 1974.

Located on Church Street, in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood, the building is shocking the viewer through its lack of windows and flat concrete slab facade. It kind of looks like a medieval tower, like those linking together portions of a defense wall of an ancient castle.

    This building has been a long mystery in my life. I am still under the suspicion that it contains some top secret CIA or FBI offices (and perhaps have even more windowless offices underground?!)…. just a thought

    Damn – I’ve never seen this building before. Kind of creepy, no? Nice shot too.
