Had a wonderful afternoon wandering around a rainy and foggy Brooklyn with Susan from MindfulWalker.com. One highlight, among many, was The Cranlyn at 80 Cranberry Street in Brooklyn Heights designed by Hyman Isaac Feldman and dating from 1931.
Obviously we were attracted by the banded brick work and the decoration at the roofline of each wing and then we saw the decorative panels above some of the doorways.
Not to mention the main entrance ...
... and the panel above the door.
The foyer had some nice features ...
... but nothing came close to the panels on the lift and stairs doors.
MELBOURNE ART DECO
In 2009 Robin Grow published a book on Melbourne Art Deco, with images largely supplied by David Thompson. The book quickly sold out and he is pleased to say that it has now been re-published by Brolga Press, with updates, errors corrected and a new cover.
Best of all, it is selling for about $25 in the shops and on-line. Art Deco & Modernism Society members can purchase a copy from me for $22, (includes postage within Australia). For overseas orders please email for postage rates. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested, and advise if you would like the book to be dedicated and/or signed.
