61 Grand St
This modestly sized apartment building is well adapted to the neighborhood with its exposed terracotta bricks and green window frames. The simplified Romanesque Revival easily shows the period the building was built in. The rusticated stone plinth is serene and orderly, the cornices and corner pilasters are simple and smooth and arched dormers are plain, elementary. The building fenestration is perfectly rhythmic, and the chimneys follow the rhythm.
Still, the aim is clear, the appearance of this building credits the historic style, while respecting the contemporary use of materials.
