A photo of The Majestic circa 1910 shows how the cornice of a building really finishes it off. Comparing the turn of the century image with the current state of the building, one can see that the original design was truly more majestic with its bold cornice and balustrade detail at the top of the roof. Most would probably not look twice at this building at 145th Street and St. Nicholas Avenue today but it was probably one of the modern marvels in Harlem 100 years ago when it was first built.
