One of the fabled "three Napoleons" of New York (with Raymond Hood and Ralph Walker) yet almost unknown today, Ely Jacques Kahn had a nearly half-century career, and approximately three dozen of his buildings still grace the New York cityscape. Trained at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, he was known for his modern polychrome decoration and setback skyscrapers.
