@mandanyc has come across three photos we had not seen before, and, as always, provided helpful commentary. The comments on her page show just how appreciated her efforts are! A great 87th birthday gift! 
Regrann from @mandanyc -  Formerly known as the City Bank-Farmers Trust Building, 20 Exchange was built between 1930–1931, for the newly merged National City Bank of New York and the Farmers' Loan and Trust Company, predecessor firms of Citigroup. It remained the company's headquarters until 1956 and was ultimately sold in 1979.
Originally designed in 1929 to be the world's tallest building at 846.4 feet (258.0 m), with a pyramidal top and a budget of $9,500,000, Depression era realities resulted in a scaled back, 741-foot (226 m) tall building, NYC fourth tallest building at the time. It remained among the top ten tallest buildings in New York until 1970. 
Today, it’s the sixth (ish) tallest building in downtown Manhattan, and the 39th (ish) tallest in NYC. One thing I’m certain about though....it is still among the most prominent buildings in the city’s skyline. -
Don’t you agree?

Happy Birthday for Saturday 🎉🎁🎂

The Giants are preparing for this coming Saturday, which is the 87th birthday of Twenty Exchange. It's the one time of the year all 14 of them smile...for just a moment. Apparently. 👌
