One of two carved limestone replicas of the American International Building at 70 Pine Street in downtown New York. The sculptures stand guard over the two main entrances of this under-appreciated skyscraper on Pine and Cedar Streets.

Immediately after snapping this digital photograph, the Otto Mannix staff photographer was told by a security guard to refrain from taking any further pictures. Click on the photo for an enlarged jpeg.

Halt! Everyone knows that international terrorist groups are big fans of gothic-inspired skyscraper design, as well as Streamline and Deco-style architecture.
