Building of the Day: Ezra Stoller photographed Lever House when it was completed in 1952. Notice the New York Athletic Club on the left and the construction site in the foreground, soon to be the Seagram Building.

As part of the sixth annual Architecture and Design Month in New York City, we are featuring NYC buildings captured by Esto’s team. This month-long festival of architecture, activities, programs and exhibitions is organized by The Center for Architecture, the New York City chapter of the American Institute of Architecture.
