Not the prettiest or most glamorous part of Central Park's history. "Hoovervilles" popped up in many metropolitan areas all over the country. Those who had lost everything as a result of the market crash set up makeshift homes wherever they found space and a dose of community tolerance. These particular folks managed to set up camp in one of the highest dollar real estate areas in the world. I love the bold spirit represented by these tenacious ville residents.

The 1924 American Standard Building at 40 West 40th Street by Raymond Hood & André Fouilhoux. The building was built in 1923-1924 for the American Radiator Co., a heater manufacturing company. The 36-story building had one of the first set-back pyramidal silhouettes in the city, and another influenced by Saarinen’s entry on the Chicago Tribune competition.
