330 West 42nd Street

330 West 42nd Street The McGraw Hill Building at 330 West 42nd Street is a building 33 stories and 485ft high, located in the Hell's Kitchen section of Manhattan, New York City.

It was completed in 1931 and designed by Raymond Hood. The second building named after McGraw Hill in New York City, it replaces the function of the original McGraw-Hill building at 469 Tenth Avenue. The exterior walls of the building are panels of blue-green terra-cotta ceramic tiles, alternating with green-metal-framed windows, with a strongly horizontal orientation. The building was the only one in the city displayed in the influential International Style exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in 1932, and as such, it has also been cited as a landmark of Art Deco design. Located on West 42nd Street, between Eighth and Ninth Avenues, above the Port Authority Bus Terminal, the McGraw-Hill Building was the tallest building in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood for decades, but lost that status with the construction of One Worldwide Plaza eight blocks to the north. It is still visible from a distance, but is dwarfed by the newly constructed Orion, a 58-story residential complex with a green exterior to its west on the same block.
