That's the Woolworth Building.

Good point, Unknown. On the other hand, Doc Savage's HQ is on the 86th floor of the Empire State Building, which is the world's most famous building, and should be at the center of the frame...let's just say Tony DeZuniga produced a beautiful cityscape but all the action is taking place to the right of it!

(Also, I wanted to make a smartass joke about it!)

This was before Hercules brought Manhattan back the wrong way, I take it.
