Polychromy, horizontal banding, casement windows, fire escape. Casement windows. Corner windows were associated with the solariums found in upper-income level homes and brought in large amounts of light and air. They also gave the corner of the building a dematerializing appearance. When these apartment houses were constructed, they all had steel windows although only a few examples survive today. The most notable example with surviving steel windows is 101 Cooper Street, which was designed by Horace Ginsbern and built in 1937. (CU)

* 687 West 204th Street, 1935, George G. Miller
An excellent and somewhat unusual example of façade ornamentation is 687 West 204th Street, which was designed by George G. Miller and built in 1935. Horizontal banding in the brickwork and vertical exaggeration in the window treatments create a grid across the façade, unusual for the typical weaving patterns of Art Deco design. 687 West 204th Street is characterized by its unique polychrome cast-stone parapet design that is reminiscent of textile patterns that were used in Art Deco detailing.

INCORRECT DATE AND ARCHITECT IN COLUMBIA STUDY – CURRENT STRUCTURE REPLACED ONE STORY STRUCTURES BUILT MUCH EARLIER.Earlier building what Willensky call a “taxpayer” “A low (1- or 2-story) modest building where many stories might be permitted by zoning but where the owner, because of limited finances (particularly during the 1930s depression), wished only to have sufficient income to pay the expenses and taxes until better times arrived.” Parapet removed.
