Comments:
One of the bronze plaques erected on Park Ave in Manhattan by artist Greg Le Fabre and depicting historic buildings in the area. The plaques were laid in 1996

The 50-story skyscraper, originally called the RCA Victor Building. During the construction of the building (1931) RCA was a subsidiary of GE, and the building was designed to house its offices. But already in the middle of the construction of the tower, RCA moved to another location, and GE used it as the company’s headquarters from 1933-1974.
The building is on the National Register of Historic Places in the United States.

Further expansion on the project can be found in one of the plaques Click for sign's details
