Editor's Notes:

This monumentally-scaled couple, residing above the entrance of the Carlyle Galleries, represent the twin Madison Avenue ideals of Cheesecake and Beefcake.

But seriously, folks, we learned through Google that this building, which faces the Carlyle Hotel across the street, was commissioned by the Rockefellers, and this sculpture sort of resembles some of those around Rockefeller Center. But it also looks like it could possibly be a retro thing done in the '60's, which is why we are including it in this series.
