21 West Street Building




21 West Street Building





Financial District, Manhattan, New York City, New York, United States

The thirty-one story, brick Art Deco office building at 21 West Street was constructed in 1929-31 to the designs of the prolific architectural firm of Starrett & Van Vleck. With its bold, set-back profile, and finely detailed brickwork sestive of woven fabric, this building epitomizes the skyscrapers built in New York during the "Jazz Age," when architects and their clients were searching for ways to represent this period which was seen as more fast-paced, mechanized, and altogether different from what had come before. The architects used brick for its varied color and textural interest, derived the massing from the recent zoning laws, and used space in new ways, incorporating a recessed street-level shopping arcade and corner windows. The architectural firm of Starrett & Van Vleck which had designed numerous buildings, including offices, schools, and stores were experienced practitioners of this type of design.

DESCRIPTION AND ANALYSIS

History of the Area

The southernmost tip of Manhattan is the oldest inhabited part of the island. It was so densely built up that early in the city's history, the areas adjacent to the shore began to be filled in to create more useable land. The entire block of West Street, from Battery Place to Morris Street is built upon landfill in the Hudson River; its creation occured in the early years of the nineteenth century, in accordance with the terms of certain water grants made by the city. The earliest occupants of this area purchased standard 25-foot lots and constructed individual houses on them. Over the course of the nineteenth century, the city's increasing population, changes in fashion, as well as changes in types of businesses and their needs meant that residences relocated further uptown, leaving lower Manhattan primarily for business use. Beginning in the early twentieth century, ownership on the block began to change from individuals to realty and warehouse companies. These new owners tended to buy numerous small lots and assemble larger parcels to accommodate new, larger industrial and office buildings. In 1929, the land on which 21 West Street is located, then occupied by various low, early nineteenth-century buildings, changed hands several times among a series of real estate concerns until it was purchased by the 21 West Street Corporation which erected this office building for investment purposes.

The period from 1925 to 1931 was a period of tremendous building and growth in New York City. During 1925, fifteen new office skyscrapers were erected, and during 1926, thirty more towers were built. The years 1929-1930 were the peak years for the construction of office buildings in the Art Deco style despite the crash of the Stock Market, as those which had been previously planned and financed went forward. Large skyscrapers of those years included the Empire State Building (1929-31, 350 Fifth Avenue, a designated New York City Landmark), the Chrysler Building (1928-30, 405 Lexington Avenue, a designated New York City Landmark), and the Daily News Building (1929-30, 220 East 42nd Street, a designated New York City Landmark) in midtown, and the Manhattan Company Building (1929-30, 40 Wall Street, a designated New York City Landmark), the City Bank-Farmers Trust Company Building (1930-31, 20 Exchange Place, a designated New York City Landmark) and the Irving Trust Building (1929-32,

1 Wall Street) downtown. Infra-structure improvements in various parts of the city served as spurs to new development, such as the demolition of the Second Avenue Elevated which paved the way for Tudor City on the east side, and the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel in lower Manhattan which made travel between Manhattan and Brooklyn easier, while eliminating much east-west traffic in lower Manhattan, near the site of this West Street building.

Art Deco Style

The Art Deco or Modernistic style of architecture which primarily appeared in this country from the mid-1920s through the 1930s, has been called an “avant-garde traditionalist” approach to creating a contemporary idiom for buildings of the period. As in other self-conscious modern periods, designers and critics of this time expressed the need for a new style which could be deemed appropriate for the period dubbed the "Jazz Age," and all its accompanying technological developments. Much of the architecture that we know as Art Deco however, was based on accepted, standard forms and construction techniques, which were given a modern cast through the use of a characteristic ornament, and a variety of materials, some new and some simply used in a new way. Most of the architects active in this style had received traditional Beaux-Arts training in which the plan and the design of elevations were the first and most important steps in the design of a building. To these initial steps were added design and ornamental i











Former Suffolk Title and Guarantee Company Building




Former Suffolk Title and Guarantee Company Building





Constructed in 1929, the (Former) Suffolk Title and Guarantee Company Building maintains a commanding presence near the business center of Jamaica, Queens. Designed by the distinguished architectural firm of Dennison & Hirons which was known for its bank buildings, this eight-story structure was built at a time of tremendous business prosperity and building activity.

The architects used the Art Deco style enhanced with colorful terracotta ornament to create a modern and distinctive headquarters for the Long Island-based firm, which was organized in 1925 to insure real estate titles, guarantee mortgages, and make loans. Echoing the dominant shapes of the prominent Art Deco skyscrapers of the period in this smaller building, the architects emphasized the verticality of the structure with continuous masonry piers and a variety of setbacks near the top.

This arrangement, along with the brightly-colored, terra-cotta panels by noted sculptor Rene Chambellan that are strategically applied to the crown and the second story, make this a truly unique building in downtown Jamaica, and a rare example of the skyscraper style applied to small buildings outside of Manhattan.

Development of the Area

Jamaica, one of the oldest settlements within the current boundaries of New York City, developed into the leading commercial center of Queens County by 1900 and continues to be the largest and most densely-populated neighborhood in central Queens. The Dutch purchased the land in Jamaica from the Jameco Indians in 1655. The following year, Governor Peter Stuyvesant granted a charter to the town, originally known as Rusdorp.

Following the transfer of power from the Dutch to the English in 1664, Rusdorp was renamed Jamaica, after the original inhabitants of the region. Queens County (incorporating present-day Queens and Nassau Counties) was chartered in 1683 and Jamaica was one of the three original governing units established there (along with Newtown and Flushing). Outside the town center, Jamaica was largely an area of farms and pastures. The rural village was officially incorporated by New York State in 1814.

Jamaica's central location in Queens County, and the extensive transportation network that developed in the town during the nineteenth century, transformed the village into the major commercial center for Queens County and much of eastern Long Island. The arrival of the railroads in the 1830s began this evolution.

The rail lines connected Jamaica with other sections of Queens county, Brooklyn, eastern Long Island, and the ferries to New York City. Jamaica's farmland was soon being subdivided into streets and building lots, and many houses were erected.

By the turn of the century, Jamaica' s importance as a commercial area became evident in the impressive buildings constructed on Jamaica Avenue, most notably the Beaux-Arts Jamaica Savings Bank Building (161-02 Jamaica Avenue, 1897-98, Hough & Duell), and the neo-ltalian Renaissance Queens County Register Office (161-04 Jamaica Avenue, 1898, A.S. Macgregor, a designated New York City Landmark).

After Jamaica was incorporated into the Borough of Queens and became a part of New York City on January 1, 1898, additional transportation improvements brought increasing numbers of people. As a result, the population of Jamaica quadrupled between 1900 and 1920.

During the 1920s, when the major mass transit links were in place and private automobile ownership was growing at an extraordinary rate, Jamaica experienced its major expansion as a commercial center. By 1925, lots on Jamaica Avenue between 160111 Street and 168th Street had the highest assessed valuation in Queens County.

Many small-scale commercial buildings were erected in Jamaica at this time, as well as several major office and commercial structures, including the Jamaica Chamber of Commerce Building on 161st Street (1928-29, George W. Conable) and the J. Kurtz & Sons Store on Jamaica Avenue (1931, AUmendiger & Schlendorf, a designated New York City Landmark). When the Suffolk Title and Guarantee Company chose Jamaica for its new headquarters building in 1929, this was the most prosperous commercial section of the borough. It was also a center for banking and insurance in Queens, with several other banks and title guarantee companies located on the same block.

Suffolk Title and Guarantee Company

The Suffolk Title and Guarantee Company was founded in 1925 for the purpose of insuring property titles, making loans on bonds and mortgages, and selling guaranteed mortgages. The company, with businessman Willard Baylis as president, was organized in Suffolk County, but had offices in Manhattan, Long Island City, Mineola, and Riverhead, as well as Jamaica, Queens.

Its slogan was "A Title Company that Knows Long Island." Established during the period of intense business activity of the nineteen-twenties, the company expanded rapidly, and by 1927 had acquired another well-known title co
