    "I had to obtain all sorts of permission to make these photographs, but I knew I had to capture this magnificent building. Even with the big skylights the interior was dark, and there was movement. My film was slow and often I was forced to shoot at 1/10 or 1/25 of a second. it was absolutely wicked to tear the building down; it was cheating America, denying Americans their cultural heritage." - Berenice Abbott
