Working in the Mad Men era #1
I worked in what was then called the PanAm building and it was a glamorous building to be in. The lobby areas were designed as part of the building and the newspaper stands and the telephone booths (yes booths, and there were plenty of them) were all designed to be part of the building look. Lots of metal and wood. There were also a number of Restaurant Associates eating places in the building. A Zum Zum, part of their chain of somewhat German-style food places and an Italian restaurant whose name I don't remember.
And yes plenty of drinking during the day in the offices and plenty of affairs going on.
