SMCYB McGraw-Hill is actually a pretty cool building. I stood on 42nd street one day studying it for about 10-15 minutes. Its top section is certainly the best looking exterior part of either of these buildings, and also the most art deco part.  
Architecture lover I would suggest a tournament dedicated to American Art Deco where we could incorporate buildings like Buffalo City Hall, the Niagara Mohawk Building, the Eastern Columbia Building, the Carbide & Carbon Building, the Chrysler Building and others. However I am not sure that would be a good idea, since it's going to be so hard to choose between these beauties. Also, choosing a winner would be so not fair, because they all look amazing. But it could be a nice showcase of the authenticity of this architectural style.  +3
