Deco Details

Straying once again from the subject of landscape architecture, I am posting some photos of my favorite style of historic architecture. Art Deco buildings are not very common in the northeastern U.S., and I always get excited when I see a well-designed structure in this style, especially those with interesting details. Below are a few examples I’ve photographed during the last couple of years. Also, you can check out more on this subject in two of my previous posts: Miami Beach Art Deco and Art Deco in New York City.

One thought on “Deco Details

  1. I really like the first three details of the NYC buildings. Also the Grand Theatre in Ellsworth, ME., the Salvation Army bldg. in NYC, and the Starrett-Lehigh Bldg. in NYC. The last one reminds me of the Knapp’s Dept. Store Bldg. in Lansing, MI. That one has been lovingly restored now for offices and living quarters. Great photos!
