I am looking for buildings in New York City with public spaces that are good examples of mid century modern design and architecture. Building lobbies, plazas, diners, etc. Something along the lines of the old TWA terminal 5 at JFK.

Chelsea Market building at 15th and 9th ave cool design, inside and out.

Also, this building that is caddy-corner to the southeast of Chelsea Market - looks awesome from the outside - like they built a new modern building halfway into an old brick one.
