Penthouse

A peek-a-boo view of the top of the Marine Building. It's amazing to me that the building was completed in just 16 months at the start of the Great Depression.  

The penthouse was built as a private residence. Although it's offices now some original elements, such as the bathroom, are still intact. At least they were the last time I was up there.
