Dr. Kestler’s residence is one of several mixed use sites featured on Queens Modern and still serving as both a medical office and residence today. The building is built into a sloping corner hillside so that the medical office is approachable at grade from the main thoroughfare of Crocheron Avenue while the residential entrance is on the second level, hidden from street view and accessible from the side street. Building materials include brick, stone and wood shingles. The overall feeling is one of horizontality and melding well within the landscape.
This low-rise bank branch sits on an oddly shaped lot bordering residential Flushing. It consists of a one-story brick pavilion and two-story larger pavilion sitting at angles to each other, giving the structure a dynamic quality. The neat brick and aluminum facade makes for a pleasing composition and both parts of the building contain considerable window area. The building remains in good condition.
