70 Pine Street – formerly known as the American International Building, 60 Wall Tower and originally as the Cities Service Building – is a 66-story, 952-foot office building located at the corner of Pearl Street and running to Cedar Street in the Financial District of Manhattan, New York City. It was built in 1931-32 by the Cities Service Company for the oil and gas baron Henry Latham Doherty, and was designed by the firms of Clinton & Russell and Holton & George in the Art Deco style.
Once the third tallest building in the world and the last skyscraper to be built in Lower Manhattan prior to World War II, this tower was of great interest to the local Glass Walkers of the time, who have tended it from the beginning. As enough human attention and affection pooled on the grand landmark, they gained the ability to form a Caern of middling power – the first successful mid-city Caern in ages. Attuning the surroundings to Prosperity drew the attention of Ol’ Mighty Dollah, who served and was served faithfully until the old-school Corporate Wolves and Wise Guys began losing favor in the tribe. His departure weakened the Caern substantially, leaving it in the care of younger Walkers who scrambled to keep their little oasis of spiritual strength alive.
Now a little-known spirit has Awoken within the tower, taking up the role of totem as it begins to explore what it and it’s Sept are capable of.
Tommy Knockraha’s first attempt at a Rite of Passage took place here, though he departed after its failure.
