“aka The Daily Planet!”

The Daily News Building, also known as The News Building, is a 476-foot  Art-Deco  skyscraper  located at 220 East 42nd Street between Second and Third Avenues in the Turtle Bay neighborhood of MIdtown Manhattan, New York City. Built in 1929-1930, it was headquarters for the New York Daily News newspaper until 1995. Its design by architects Raymond Hood and John Mead Howells, among the first skyscrapers to be built without an ornamental crown, can be seen as a precursor to Hood's design of Rockefeller Center. "In 1927, the Daily News, then the nation’s largest newspaper, began building its new headquarters on 42nd Street. While the building itself was considered an exercise in minimalism, the owners allowed architect Raymond Hood a whopping $150,000 to be spent on the lobby. The result was an art deco masterpiece, centered around a 12-foot rotating globe" -Scouting NY The inspiration for and filming location of The Daily Planet! Also a US and NYC historic landmark!
