Emery Roth was a Hungarian architect and another reason
why America needs immigration.
He was an extremely talented guy.
He designed the fancy twin-tower residences all along Central Cark West.
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!
