In fact the New York Tribune building, designed by Richard Morris Hunt.

Needs Jean Seberg selling papers out front.

Yeah, but every building needs that.

You sure this is actually the 'Tribune' building, Patrick? The caption said 'New York Times'.

Dammit! Just looked it up, and you are correct.

Thanks!
