McKim, Mead, & White were very famous for powerstation designs. Basically every majour power station (and I mean EVERY) built between 1890-1930 in and around NY was designed by them. They are really dropping like flies, though, I can think of two that are still in use, one that has been horribly disfigured in a botched renovation job, two that have been recently demolished and three that are disused, and that's just from the top of my head.
