A previously unknown gem I unearthed in the municipal archives in February 2007. This quirky apartment building is filled with spectacular, richly detailed brickwork and the occasional terra cotta frieze. It is adjacent to a plain structure also designed by Hardenbergh (see below).
Information about these buildings can be found under New Building permits 286 & 287 for 1886.
