Conservation Building (State Game and Fish Building)

-A A +A
State Game and Fish Building
1926, Proudfoot, Rawson and Souers. North side of Grand Concourse, east of 31st St.

In contrast to most of the buildings within the fairgrounds, this structure presents a 1920s version of a small mid-fifteenth century Italian Renaissance building. A three-arched loggia projects toward the street, and to each side are high double-arched windows with metal balconies. Do not miss the pair of wonderful sculptured swans poised on the corners of the roof.
