Hey interesting fact...that corner building is 44 Wall street, completed in 1927! Only one year before the construction of 40 Wall St.

It is 24 stories tall and the architects were Trowbridge & Livingston. It is 329 feet tall! and in the neo-classicism style.

So it was not an architectural hold out...
