Midtown South Precinct House, Midtown, NYC

This is an unexpected surprise in Midtown Manhattan. The low-rise precinct house sits on West 35th Street between Eighth and Ninth Avenues, located between dull industrial and commercial buildings that are remnants of when this street served as more of a service alley to the larger and grander buildings on 34th Street.

The dark, almost black, brick is enlivened by the contrasting concrete at the roofline, entrance and between the windows at the first and second floors. The concrete detailing on the lower edge of the upper window surrounds is an especially nice contrast. The building was completed in 1969 and was designed by Frederick G. Frost Jr. & Associates, who was previously featured on this website here.
