511 Fifth Avenue, the Postal Life Insurance Building

511 Fifth Avenue, the Postal Life Insurance Building, consists of a structure designed by the great bank architects York & Sawyer and a (flawlessly maintained) interior renovated in 1962 by Luss, Kaplan & Associates. The renovation retained much of the York & Sawyer design while bringing aboard a sense of jet age sophistication.

Not until the recent conversion of the Walker Tower would old and new be fit together so seamlessly.
