Amalgamated Clothing and Textile Workers Union, 14th Street, NYC

IMG_1606

There isn’t a lot of information available about this intriguing little building on 14th Street in Manhattan. The two-story commercial structure houses, or housed at one time, the Amalgamated Clothing and Textile Workers Union Local 169 as well as Gallery 169, which was responsible for the mural on the front. It was built in 1947 and exhibits some early modern elements includes the curved awning detail on the second floor, the flagpole and the entrance surround. With continued development on 14th Street, I’m not sure how much longer it will be around.
