Weston, Martyn N. | Honorable Mention | Extant | Jackson Heights | Apartment Building | 1956 |
Another ubiquitous late Jackson Heights apartment building, this one is of dark red brick and an entrance that originally shown with white marble and a turquoise mosaic, both now gone.
Weston, Martyn N. | Honorable Mention | Extant | Glendale | Office Building | 1955 |
The Mount Lebanon Cemetery administrative offices are housed in this understated building just inside the cemetery gates. Built on a slope, there is a parking lot on either side of the site. The building itself is clad in brick and has had several additions added or spaces enclosed. The structure can still be identified by the vertical pylon to the right of the entrance. The Brooklyn-based architect Martyn Weston is buried in the cemetery not very far away from this award-winning structure he designed.
Weston, Don and Martyn | Bronze Plaque for Residences | Extant | Far Rockaway | Residence | 1967 |
These townhouses are distinctly modern yet try to retain the low-rise character of the Rockaways and encourage socialization through front and back porches. The main feature here is the low dip in the eave-line. The buildings are all completely fireproof. Similar townhouses nearby with large center gardens demonstrate the likely success of this development.
Weston, Martyn N. | Bronze Plaque for Commercial | Extant | Flushing | Retail or Shopping Center | 1953 |
This one-story shopping center curves along Kissena Boulevard and originally featured glass storefronts with an enormous 800 car parking lot in the rear, highlighting the increasing focus on the automobile in mid-century design. Many of the original features of the shopping center have vanished including a tall 66-foot vertical tower and several of the street-side windows have been bricked in to reorient the shopping toward the parking lot. An original mosaic cornucopia still decorates the facade on the street and the original brick facade and limestone detailing is also visible.
