sixtysecondsworthofdistance-dea asked: You should consider taking some photos of 570 Lexington when you get the chance. The building was designed in '31 and deeded to GE by RCA while Radio City was still under construction, so there's a great deco influence.

Thanks for the suggestion. I will go look for some photos, recent and vintage. Here is one I just found on Flickr of the interior. Wow.

George Firestone Building in Tallahassee, Florida

George Firestone Building, Tallahassee, Florida
From Roadside Architecture via jackrubytuesday

WOW! I haven’t gone through the Florida photos on Roadside yet because, like California and New York, there is just so much! This is fabulous.

This is my favorite building in this city. It’s a Streamline Moderne (latter-day Art Deco) structure built in 1936 that used to be the county jail(!) before it got converted into a state office. The outside needs some cleaning, as you can tell by the pollen stains that are kind of unavoidable around here, but it’s still cool. The building was designed by M. Leo Elliott.
