About This File
The history of the MetLife Building begins in 1954 as part of the plan to reconstruct Grand Central Terminal. Erwin S. Wolfson developed the project in the early 1960's with the assistance of the architects Emery Roth and Sons, Walter Gropius and Pietro Belluschi. When the doors of 200 Park Avenue opened on March 7, 1963, it was known as "The Pan Am Building" and was the focal point of Park Avenue. Today, this building is known as "The MetLife Building 200 Park Avenue." It stretches from East 43rd Street to East 45th Street and offers direct access to Grand Central Terminal, an important transportation hub in New York City.
The file contains a CO$$ plopable and a combination Grand Central and MetLife Building lot. The later was based on a request from several users in order to maintain proper spacing between streets and avenues in custom NYC maps.
