"Famous Architectural Structures"--answer

:lol: The history of the Halsam Co. of Chicago goes back around 90 years. Over those years they have given us some of the finest and most beautiful wooden checker sets that one could ever want to use in playing a challenging game across the board. One such set that they put out many years ago was embossed with the picture of one of New York's most famous architectural structures. "Checker Trivia" questions of the Day"? What "two" famous New York architectural structures have people over the years thought the building on the checkers represented? And which one of those two is actually depicted on the checkers? :lol: "Mr. Checkers"

:lol: You may want to sleep on this question because only one half of the answer will come easy; unless of course you are from New York. :lol: "Mr. Checkers"
