Another Building Top

I wish I knew more about this building. I was imressed by all of the details at the top like the carved figures, the lightning bolts and the other finishes. I don't know what building it is, so if any can identify it, that would be great. (I think it's around 48th Street and Lexington Avenue in midtown.) I usually miss the details like this until I remember to look up!

It's the General Electric Building Lori. It's at Lex and 51st. I didn't know any of that, I had to look it up.
