|Discussion||New York Herald Building Commentary
"The New York Herald Building is an example of the selection of an exterior form that serves as an envelope and almost completely contradicts the interior. ...A perfectly circular entrance lobby contrasted with the remainder of the interior, but gave to the visitor a sense of order, the same order that the harmonious exterior gave to the irregular site and the surrounding disorder of the city."
Richard Guy Wilson. McKim, Mead & White Architects. New York: Rizzoli, 1983. p50-51.
