I have always liked this building and was sad to see it looking more and more run down over the years. Then at last a developer took it restored its good looks.
Others might say that it's just another bit of Art Deco, just one of many, but I like its black and white tiled facade, the rectilinear windows and the curved "marine style" windows in the upper stories. Buildings like this are obviously "modern", but they always make me feel at home, and for some reason always make me feel as if the sun is shining and Spring is in the air. Unfortunately, not all modern buildings do this.
Today the spacious ground floor area hosts a large and popular Pizza Express restaurant.
