Singer Tower

I worked for a division of Singer from '76 thru '79 - the heating division.  Singer was in serious financial straights at the time.  In the late 60's and early 70's the office products division attempted to compete in the business computer space - and they lost big.  We were struggling after being drug through bankruptcy.  The mis-steps of the office products division resulted in the largest bankruptcy in financial history.  It was later eclipsed by Chrysler.  We joked at the time that we couldn't buy a pencil without approval from Rockefeller Center.

I never heard the story of the Singer Tower.  Thanks for sharing that Cheese.
