The New York sky line does not stay put very long. It seemed we had hardly finished laying a wreath on the doorstep of the Fred F. French Company's Tudor City, the twin masses of which made such a satisfactory sky and water-gate to the end of Forty-second Street, when another unit went up which completely blots out the right-hand mass of the balanced composition. The design is now unsymmetrical and, we are glad to report, even more pleasing. For the new building, Woodstock Tower, is a graceful minaret topped by a slender spire that makes a nice accent in the morning or evening sky.
A closer view reveals an agreeable combination of limestone base and simple brick shaft, enlivened by casement windows which, opening outward and firmly held at various angles, add quite a jovial note.
