    101 Lafayette Avenue, also known as the Griffin, was a 17-story Art Deco hotel when finished in 1931. In 1987, the 17-floor, 176-foot structure was converted to cooperative apartments.

    Hundreds if not thousands of art deco apartment buildings are still found in all boroughs of NYC.

    Happy hunting!

    Here's a gem that's a bit off the beaten track:

    The 369th Regiment Armory, 5th Avenue and 142nd Street; "...one of the last New York City armories to be constructed..." (New York City Landmarks); drill shed, Tachau & Vought, 1921-24, administration building Van Wart & Wein, 1930-33. This, thankfully, is a designated landmark, 1985.

    It looks tragically dirty, though that might be partly the source of its power.

    Should a building like this be cleaned?

    Lovely, except for that sign.


    Building of the Day: 185 Montague Street



    185 Montague Street, between Clinton and Cadman Plaza West. Brooklyn Heights.
    Corbett, Harrison and MacMurray, architects, 1930.







    Address: 185 Montague Street, between Cadman Plaza W. and Clinton St.
    Name: Originally National Title Guarantee Building
    Neighborhood: Brooklyn Heights
    Year Built: 1930
    Architectural Style: Art Deco
    Architects: Corbett, Harrison & MacMurray
    Landmarked: No

    Why chosen: The first three decades of the 20th century produced a wealth of brilliant design, ranging from Beaux Arts through Art Deco. Art Deco is a style born for large towers, apartment and office buildings, and we've got some real beauties, including this one. Real estate always being key to the growth of the city, the National Title Guarantee Company did very well, and built this office complex, completely different from the Beaux Arts banks who share this block, helping making Montague St. the architectural montage that it is. The ziggurat towers are visually enhanced by the delicate angular tracery on the lower floors. The ground floor is currently occupied by Chipotle, a Mexican chain restaurant. Ironically, much of Art Deco's iconography and ornament is derived from Aztec architecture, so this actually is a good match of past and present. The architects are the same firm that gave us Rockefeller Center, another Deco masterpiece.

    Building of the Day: 80 Cranberry Street


    The Cranlyn Apartments, 80 Cranberry Street, corner of Henry. Brooklyn Heights.
    H.I. Feldman, architect. 1931









    Address: 80 Cranberry Street, corner of Henry St.
    Name: The Cranlyn Apartments
    Neighborhood: Brooklyn Heights
    Year Built: 1931
    Architectural Style: Art Deco
    Architects: H.I. Feldman
    Landmarked: Yes

    Why chosen: This is a classic Art Deco apartment building. It's got the massing of shapes with the ziggurat cuts in the upper floors, with their penthouse terraces, and decorative bands of alternating brick colors, and some really nice terra-cotta trim. Especially nice are the terra-cotta peacock motifs above the side entrances on Cranberry. H.I. Feldman, a Yale educated architect, designed a lot of apartment buildings in Manhattan and the Bronx, especially during the 1930's and '40's. He embraced both Art Deco and Modernism in his middle class buildings. Many of his Bronx buildings are on or near the Grand Concourse, the Bronx's Striver's Row. Here in Brooklyn Heights, he also designed 55 Pierrepont and 70 Remsen, which are way different in style from his Deco buildings. They will be individual BOTD's at a later date. The Cranlyn towers over its brownstone neighbors, but its place on the corner of Henry, down the street from the St. George Hotel, and near the much later Cadman Plaza highrises works well, and it all balances out. Most people pass here without even noticing what a great building this is. Next time you are here, look up!

    It would be marvelous to be able to wander around up there and take a peek over those railings:

    Hey folks!

    I wish people wouldn't just steal my photos without asking permission. They aren't public domain.

    If you post it on Flickr without privacy controls, anyone can link to it...that's how it works. Not to mention, he posted a link to your page. If you don't want people seeing it and linking the image, then change your privacy settings so the image can't be linked to. "Stealing" is a bit strong, don't you think? Perhaps you should just put your photos in a scrapbook and lock them in a safe.

    Linking to it is posting the URL that directs you to the owner's page. Posting the image is hot linking, copying the image without permission.

    that's how it works.
    On photo hosting websites, full copyright is implied to the owner. That's the law in the US and most other countries. The owner can grant permissions to his copyright. See Creative Commons

    "Stealing" is a bit strong, don't you think?
    Maybe. The intent isn't stealing when you post an image in a forum, but legally, that's exactly what it is.

    It's ill advised to argue or get sarcastic when an owner points out that his property is being used without his permission. You do what Edward did - remove it.
