I grew up calling it the Pan Am building, and it'll always be the Pan Am building to me, even if it's now got "MetLife" emblazoned on it. MetLife sold the Pan Am building to Tishman Speyer Properties, LP. Try fitting that on the building. They say they'll keep the MetLife sign on. If they had any guts, they'd replace it with the Pan Am sign and return to New York a bit of its past. And by the way - there's still a Pan Am in existence, but it's a parody of its former self.
