Margaret Capanegro Residence

| | | | | |

This residence was a product of the era, an L-shaped structure on a large corner plot with an unusual low asphalt-shingle roof that included a dome shape with three octagonal windows over the central entrance. These windows overlooked an open cathedral-style entrance and a spiral staircase for access to the second floor. The awards description also states that all rooms led off the central hallway like spokes on a wheel. The main living space also included a sunken living room with floor to ceiling windows. The exterior was clad in Sayre and Fisher brick, a longstanding brick manufacturer from New Jersey that experienced a resurgence in popularity in the 1960s but closed in 1970. The Capanegro residence was demolished in 2004 and replaced by two McMansions.

R. C. Church of St. Mary

St. Mary is another example of Boegel and Allodi’s classical design using modern materials. The Gothic design incorporates ashlar and limestone, a traditional rose window. The sanctuary ceiling is wood with stained glass from Ireland. The only mention in the awards description to a more modern material is the use of Waylite blocks, a type of concrete block created in the 1930s.

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.
