Located at the corner of Madison Ave and 51st Street, the cake-like Look Building is named for the now-defunct magazine that the structure housed from 1937 to 1971.

The building also contained the offices of music publisher Witmark and Sons, who recorded early demos of Bob Dylan. In July 1962, Dylan recorded the first demo for the song "Blowin' in the Wind" in a 6' x 8' room at this address.

Since then, the Look building was added to the NYC landmark list in July of 2010. An album of the Witmark demos was released in 2010 called The Bootleg Series Vol. 9: The Witmark Demos: 1962–1964.
