Built In



Galkin Company Building (ca.1934). This was originally a single-story, brick garage built as an auto-body shop. The roofline is stepped and has ceramic coping. The automobile entrance has been replaced with a central pedestrian entrance and original multi-pane industrial steel windows have been replaced with tall, two-light aluminum replacements. After 1997, a metal-clad one-story penthouse was added at the rear of the building for residential use. Source - National Register of Historic Places This space is current the studios of Toots Zynsky
