    beaux-arts ornamentation

    Stop here and look across the street to your left.

    You’ll see a seven-story building composed of buff-colored brick and limestone. Here we have another Beaux-Arts building.

    Notice the extensive ornamentation that is characteristic of this style. See if you can find the oval cartouches, another distinctive hallmark of the Beaux-Arts style. On the sixth floor on the right three bays, notice the cluster of thin columns that support elongated arches. That's another defining feature of the Beaux-Arts style.

    Let’s continue. Keep walking to the end of the block.

Preview mode limited to first 3 locations.
