Barclay-Vesey Building New York

Built as a switching center for the New York Telephone Company, this Art Deco treasure incorporates an innovative seventeen-foot pedestrian arcade that allows its interior space to extend out to the street line. Its ornamentation is exotic and playful, including giant elephants lounging up at the top. The brickwork comes in no less than nineteen different colors, from deep rose at street level to bright orange, tinged with pink, at the roof line.
