Rows of arches, February 8, 2017

My American Institute of Architecture Guide to New York City notes this building’s “romantic rose brick and granite” and reports as well that it was designed by George E. Harney, that it was built in 1873-74, and that it was originally a Brooks Brothers store. Find a wonderful history of the building and more pictures at this site here. Find a long list of Harney’s other projects here.
