In 1929 another famous hotel that was designed by McKim Mead, and White, was demolished to make way for another skyscraper. The building known as that Empire State Building now stands on the corner of 5th ave and 34th st. Although the Waldorf was rebuilt further uptown, it does go to show that our McKim Mead and White hotel is looking at the same fate.
