Hearst Statues

Hearst Tower is an interesting story since the base was completed in the 20’s and was supposed to be the start of a skyscraper that was postponed due to the Great Depression.

The modern glass tower was built in 2006. Only the facade of the building is from the 20’s, but it’s really pretty interesting if you take the time to actually look at it.

Thanks to being from an era where they cared how a building looked, it’s somewhat ornate.
