Aviation High School is a specialized trade high school purpose built for its somewhat unusual focus. Taking up an entire city block on Queens Boulevard in Woodside and accommodating 2,500 students, the school includes normal educational facilities like classrooms and a cafeteria but also a hangar and shops where students work on donated aircraft. The complex is of a Miesian design, largely unaltered, and includes a curtain wall design with aluminum framed windows and enamel panels in a green-blue hue. A light colored brick is also employed. The main entrance, actually on 36th Street, features a large stainless steel sculpture running up the side of the building and according to the Queens Awards program is an abstraction of aircraft vapor.

The Sadler Realty Corporation building is a one-story industrial building with a corner office space and truck bays on 48th Avenue and at the other end of the building facing a lot on Van Dam Street. The materials are beige brick and metal trim, now painted blue. It is unclear what Sadler Realty Corp. was or what the building was built for originally. Today it is vacant but most recently was used by Van Wagner Communications.

This industrial building retains its original materials of brick with a flat metal roof. The main change has been the enclosure of the windows at the corner of 48th Avenue and 36th Street to create smaller clerestory windows. Originally this entire section had show windows that would have featured the products that Do All Eastern made. Today the building is used by Rama Enterprises, a company that ships products to Thailand.
