Of all the world's great cities, none is so defined by its Art Deco buildings as New York with its noble Art Deco skyscrapers, such as Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, the Empire State Building, and the Chrysler Building, along with countless other apartment houses, public buildings, and theaters found throughout the five boroughs. This “Unicorn of Astoria” is a truly fascinating Art Deco 3-Family Townhouse that was inspired by the Chrysler and Empire State Buildings and captures the glamour and elegance trend of the 1920s and 1930s. Its sleek design and bold, geometric motifs illustrate this type of architecture beautifully, and its upward pointing railings, vertical exterior wall facade, windows, and outdoor spiral staircase were all purposely arranged to symbolize “prosper in life.”
