MetLife Building

The landmark MetLife Tower, built in 1909, has undergone a full-scale restoration. The tower is constructed of limestone and Tuckahoe marble and has a gold-leaf dome. The building’s clock tower boasts a 24-foot-diameter face on each of its four sides, with a mosaic tile background, and each numeral is actually a backlit window.
