Manhasset Apartments - 108 to 109th Streets and Broadway - NYC

Built 1904

Of note, in older tall buildings before air conditioning, air shafts were common in old skyscraper and tall apartment buildings.
The general rule was no more than a maximum space of 25 feet on a direct line from any window for natural light and natural air circulation in construction.
