street pizza

The Beresford

Emery Roth was a Hungarian architect and another reason
 why America needs immigration. 

He was an extremely talented guy.
Eldorado, wiki

He designed the fancy twin-tower residences all along Central Cark West.

SanRemo, wiki

But some of his work hasn’t fared so well.

He also designed this little building featuring a wildly ornate cornice of art nouveau sheetmetal.

Built in 1903, creamy brick and carved stone maidenheads wrap just three little stories in midtown.

Inland Architect magazine said:

Roth wisely beveled the corner to let in more sunlight.

All while suffering the current indignity of crappy pizza.

Have a good weekend!
