ARCHITECTURE: CURVED BAY WINDOWS ON LENOX

Harlem Bespoke:  Number 20 Lenox by 111th Street caught our eye recently since the architecture is  a rare example of curved bay windows used throughout a building as a design detail.  Hopefully the construction at hand will polish up this rare gem since it is such unique variation for an old prewar building.  The only other example of this aesthetic that we know of uptown can be found at the former Make My Cake address on 116th and Adam Clayton Powell which has a unique triangular layout: LINK
