The Graybar Building is not an official landmark, but it certainly is distinctive, with colorful bas-relief figures somewhere between Assyrian and Art Deco. The building was designed by Sloan & Robertson. Their most fanciful touch was to install cast-metal rats on the cables holding the canopy over the Graybar Passage. At the top of each cable is a conical baffle, similar to those that prevent rats from crawling aboard ships along mooring lines.

What is Energy Star Efficient Building?
EPA, in conjunction with stakeholders, developed the energy rating as a screening tool; it does not by itself explain why a building performs a certain way, or how to change the building’s performance. It does, however, help organizations assess performance and identify those buildings that offer the best opportunities for improvement and recognition.
