New England Telephone and Telegraph Company, Boston, Massachusetts
by Wendy Darling

Front entrance on Post Office Square. Maybe I’m wrong, but it looks to me like the renovation (mentioned below) has taken on the glass feature over the doors.

About the Building

This massive building opened in 1947 as the headquarters for New England Telephone, and though the building went to Horizon and after that was sold, it still dominates Boston’s Post Office Square. The Boston Globe reported last year ("An Art Deco Makeover") that the building is being redeveloped to the tune of $35 Million. 

Check it out on Google Street View.
