10mm, american international building, chase manhattan bank, downtown, group of four trees This is the plaza of Chase Manhattan Bank. In the foreground you can see the sculpture "Group Of Four Trees" by French artist Jean Dubuffet. Directly behind in its background rises 70 Pine Street - the former American International Building. Construction finished in 1932 and with 294m it is the tallest building in Dowtown Manhattan, after the fall of the Twin Towers, of course.The American International Building has an observatory platform on its top floor which once was open to the public, but unfortunately it serves only as a kind of club room for higher employees of AIG nowadays. Unlike Rockefeller Center no plans exist to reopen it for Joe Bloggs. What a pity, the views on downtown must be awesome from it.
