Walter Lippmann Building
Address: 43-42 10th Street
Neighborhood: Long Island City
Architect: Perlstein, Jerome W.
Current Status: Extant
Award: Bronze Plaque for Rehabilitations and Alterations
Typology: Industrial Building
The Walter Lippmann Building’s rehabilitation is truly wonderful and unexpected, although now marred by modern alterations. During the rehab, to keep costs down, a large tile mural was added to several areas of the exterior, including over the entrance, providing a striking focal point for this industrial street. At some point windows were punched through the main mural, destroying its integrity but the design remains mostly intact and is an enjoyable sight to come upon.
