The lipstick building by Philips Johnson + John Burgee Architects, 885 Third Ave, Midtown East. Completed 1986. 
A creative piece, one of the ones that stands out in my mind when I think of Philip Johnson. Funny how I lived so long in NYC and only discovered it after reading about in a book, then visiting again.
Interesting fact Bernie Madoff used to lease floors 17 - 19… occupying only floor 17 with 24 employees.
