Building Database

The Queens Modern building database can be used to search the archive of modern buildings documented during this project. While there are only 150 sites included now, when complete the database will include more than 500 buildings, sites, open spaces, and other structures. Included will be not only buildings honored by the Queens Chamber of Commerce Building Awards program but also other modern sites in Queens.

Users can search the database for buildings by entering keywords or selecting from any of the drop-down menus on the right side.

As noted elsewhere, descriptions for each site have been researched and compiled by Frampton Tolbert. Unless noted, facts about each building are taken from the original Queens Chamber of Commerce Building Awards program descriptions. Other facts are sited where appropriate.

We are indebted to the Queens Chamber of Commerce’s for permission to use content from Building Awards programs as featured in the Chamber’s monthly Queensborough Magazine.

Happy searching!
