I recommend changing to General Electric Building (New York City) with use of "()". Use of "(location)" appear to be the more common format for buidlings. FieldMarine (talk) 14:33, 4 August 2010 (UTC)

Tendency is to put between brackets what it is (painter), (sculptor), and to use a comma notation to indicate where it is, and to have an extensible location disambiguation in line with other location disambiguations. --Foroa (talk) 15:47, 4 August 2010 (UTC)

In this case “New York City” is used more as a way to distinguish it from others & not necessarily as a physical location as in here Category:Streets in Manhattan, here Category:Rivers of Florida or here Category:Buildings called flatiron. In addition, Wikipedia uses the format "(location)" for buildings as seen here Category:Skyscrapers between 150 and 199 meters. I only support the move if it is General Electric Building (New York City). FieldMarine (talk) 16:46, 4 August 2010 (UTC)

I don't really agree but have adapted the request to General Electric Building (New York City). --Foroa (talk) 06:40, 17 August 2010 (UTC)
I think a move is unnecessary. There is no other General Electric Building elsewhere to confuse this with. The only building likely to be confusing is the GE Building, which is also in New York City. Station1 (talk) 23:06, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

There is one in Denver, Colorado, see File:General Electric Building.JPG. FieldMarine (talk) 00:23, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

That's true; I hadn't noticed. There's also an image in the category that has something to do with Chicago. So if the category name is changed, those images would have to removed from the category. Would that make them harder to find? And as only one image, would each go into a category General Electric Building (Denver) or General Electric Building (Chicago)? If not, would disambiguation be needed for this category as the only one? Just to be clear, I don't normally do much on Commons, and came here almost by accident, so I don't want to hold up a move if everyone else thinks it's a good idea.
