As you know, I love newspapers – printed newspapers, a dying breed.
Here is the New York Daily News building in midtown Manhattan. The newspaper was founded in 1919 and this building has been here since 1930, on 42nd Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues. The building is historic and still houses Channel 11, WPIX, but the Daily News is in an office building downtown now, next to the Staten Island Ferry. It has offices in the building shared by many other offices.
The 42nd Street building is a beautiful art deco structure, you may recognize it from the Christopher Reeves Superman movies, where it “played” the Daily Planet. It still says Daily News out front and has an historical plaque. It also has the famous big round globe in the lobby.

Looks like the same globe that was at Miami’s PanAm terminal
Yes, looks like the same thing. Was the same era, so maybe they were both from the same globe-maker.
