Mary Richards worked here. WJM-TV, home of Ted Baxter, Lou Grant, Murray Slaughter and the aforementioned Mary, was located in this building. Every week the camera zoomed in on the broad facade to show the windows of Mary’s office. And therein lies a problem. In one episode, everyone’s having a bad, bad day. At the end they are calmed and renewed by cramming into the film library room and watching the sunset. It’s a nice scene.

Unfortunately, this side of the building faces east. No matter how you configure WJM’s office, there’s no way they could see the sunset without crossing the hall. Those of us who live here, we know these things.
