The tall and short of it: This 59-story building—easy to spot in the New York City skyline due to its sloping right-triangle rooftop—was built as headquarters for Citigroup (then Citibank) in the late 1970s. It was sold to a real estate firm in 2009, which rechristened it as 601 Lexington, though locals still refer to the building by its previous name (or its original name, Citicorp Center)—and naming rights are said to be available, so stay tuned.
Is there an observation deck? No.
