The buliding:
In 1965, the Loose-Wiles Sunshine Biscuit Co. building became the Executone Building, and in the mid-1980's it in turn became the International Design Center of New York (IDCNY) where furniture and interior design firms had their showrooms in a mammoth 900,000 square foot building. Today, IDCNY Building I is home to New York City's Departments of Design and Construction and Transportation, Building II is home to the DeVry Technical Institute, and Building III is owned by LaGuardia Community College.
