Re: The South Bronx of the 1980's

In addition to the one I posted below on Prospect Avenue, there is one building - 1879 Clinton Avenue - that also merits mention. This Art Deco beauty stood gutted and abandoned for years overlooking the Cross Bronx Expressway. It has distinctive light buff and red brickwork. And it also had curved Deco casement windows. Sometime in the late 70's it was abandoned and suffered a partial fire. Someone must have felt the same way about it that I did. Look at the street view of the same building NOW. The only thing that's disappointing is that the curved casement windows have been replaced with standard ones (note that the Deco fire escapes are still in place). But this building is a real beauty, and I'm glad to see that it's still alive.
