Closed in early 2014, the Pan American Motor Inn’s future is unclear but the building remains. It has an elliptical design, curving out to to the street on both ends. The first floor is recessed to allow access for pedestrians and vehicles. The yellow brick in the window areas bring a pop of color to the otherwise unrelieved exposed concrete frame.
This three-story school building is sited on a corner lot with the entrance on the side street. Like many religious schools of this time period, the materials are simple. The aluminum windows are surrounded by concrete framing and a large concrete cross dominates the corner brick stairtower. To the right of the entrance staircase is a perpendicular concrete wall with abstract cross motifs and to the left of the entrance doors is a striking mosaic of St. Elizabeth.
This complex is a standard suburban style medical center, common in other parts of the country but less so in New York City. The elements are a dark brown brick with white trim and a flat roof.
This bank branch is a one story structure with a flat projecting roof. The exterior incorporates full height windows, yellow brick, and dark marble cladding at one corner and on a vertical column that separates the banking space with the back offices. The building is set back from the street and surrounded by off street-parking. The architect worked in-house for First National City Bank’s Premises Department.
The Bankers Trust building was a three-story structure sited on an odd-shaped corner lot. The narrow end of the lot was the primary entrance and the bank expanded out as it went back. The bank was clad in brick above a stone base and had aluminum window detailing. The name of the branch ran along both facades and below a simple cornice line in several places were classically-inspired decorative elements, possibly stylized crests. Demolished at the height of a real estate bubble in 2008, the lot remains empty although plans have been filed for much larger buildings.
