51 (62) St Bartholomew's Church (St Bart's)
With its pink tinged brick, gold domed and romanesque terraced entrance St Bart's is much loved by the locals for just being there. But apart from its good looks St Bart's also hosts popular concerts. The church brings a touch of color to Park Avenue and brightens the lives of its visitors.
52 (63) General Electric Building
General Electric Building is an Art Deco delight with its marble lobby and a spiky radio waves top.
The GE Building was constructed close to St Bart's in order to both blend and contrast with the Church. You can get a view of both impressive buildings from corner of Park and 50th. Does the GE Building succeed in the seemingly impossible balance of fitting in and standing out? You decide.
53 (20) Museum of Sex
