The Chase Manhattan Bank – Douglaston Branch

with | | | | | |

Situated on the upper deck of a two-tiered shopping center, originally the building had a range of facade materials including pine log stone or pinola (a common veneer stone), white glazed brick, aluminum windows, and fieldstone details. Today the structure holds a Burger King restaurant and is completely unrecognizable from its days as a bank. There is a small area of pinola along the base of the building by the entrance which could be remnant of the previous design.

This narrow two-story residence sits on a steep bluff with the rear of the property looking out over Alley Pond Park. The front elevation is distinguished by a one story wing projecting toward the street and clad in Featherock, a natural volcanic stone. There are minimal windows visible from the street. The frame of the house is cantilevered, both the walls and floors over a reinforced poured foundation to account for the siting.
